[thelist] JSP Help

I thought that JSP code was parsed into servlets which look similar to the first example anyway?

Separation of data, presentation and logic (the MVC pattern) would
say just put that in *as HTML*. Your example had *no* variable data
within it at all, which makes it even worse :-)

Why have, for instance, this:

   StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer();

   buf.append("<th>Check Number</th>");
   buf.append("<th>Payment Date</th>");
   buf.append("<th>Check Amount</th>");
   buf.append("<th>Payment Type</th>");
   buf.append("<th>In Letter</th>");
   buf.append("<th>Check Details</th>");

to simply create
<table><thead><tr><th>Check Number</th> .... when you can do it
directly? (and use the validation, syntax highlighting, etc. of
your preferred tool set, as well)

The whole *point* of JSP is to remove the need for things like that
first example...
