So what would be really good is to create a tag library that performs 
common SMB activities. These tag libraries can then be incorporated into 
any JSP. This would allow for a nice abstraction between model and view. 
At least that's what Sun thinks, and let people plug this into larger 
J2EE apps... I bet this would be pretty neat in all those portal 
toolkits everybody seems to be selling these days.

Just my $0.02

There is a fine line between coincidence and destiny.
