  • Article:JSP vs. XSP  [feb 26]
    In the world of server page acronyms, XSP is gaining recognition. It's the next evolution of server pages.
    XSP stands for eXtensible Server Pages and is one of the core technologies available in Cocoon. Cocoon is one of the seven current parts of the Apache XML project. The new Cocoon paradigm is based on the fact that document content, style, and logic are often created by different individuals or working groups. Cocoon aims for a complete separation of the three layers. In other words, Cocoon allows content, logic, and style to be separated into different XML files, and it uses XSL transformation capabilities to merge them.
