Thank you very much for the great illustration.
Does JEE8 make it simpler to work with views other than JSP and JSF?

Hello, Adam.
Nice introductory video. As always, you did a great job.

I would like to know what is your thoughts about MVC specification. It seems a little bit late to me, dont you think?

The other question is about the "V" part. I mean, actually, pure HTML+JavaScript+CSS solution is a little bit ahead of 'server based' views. Ok, I have no studies or sources to ensure my words, this is only an impression.
The JSR is not explicit about supporting or not those kind of views, but they just dont seem to fit.

Well... I would appreciate your considerations.

Since introduction of JSF2.0, JSPs are considered as deprecated view technology. I understand that there will be JSPs come back with MVC 1.0?

JSPs are one of the many ViewEngines that are available for MVC. The ones backed by a JSR are JSP and Facelets.

Or you can use extensions to use the following ViewEngines:

1. Freemarker
2. Handebars
3. Mustache
4. Thymeleaf
5. Velocity
