JSP: Designed by Java programmers. In other words, tries to solve every
problem that man has, is or may ever face. It does so at the cost of
complexity. Of course it does complex session tracking automatically.

PHP: Designed by a team of pragmatic Web developers and drunken
squirrels. In other words, it's a simple framework that gives you most
of the pieces you might need. When you're first learning PHP, it can be
alot of fun. Don't listen to the squirrels, however, or you'll hate
yourself in the morning. And every time you have to touch the code. PHP
provides most of what you need to do session tracking, but for complex
cookie-less multi-server session tracking you'll have to pull in some
outside code or build it yourself.

There's a reason people are exploring the use of PHP as the view portion
of MVC Java Web apps.
