Actually, that's precisely what I'm trying to do--figure out how to make a  
Model 1 web application using servlets (not JSPs). Probably utilizing  
Freemarker in particular as a templating engine.

One of the places I see Java lacking in is rapid web development  
(typically of Model 1 apps). I don't see any inherent reason why Java  
*should* be lacking in this department, so hopefully there's a way around  
it. My goal is to see if I can't find a suitable way, and if I can't,  
gather enough information to suggest that something be written to address  
this lack.
