Yikes. This is not the case. Tomcat automatically recompiles your JSP code
into a servlet after each change, so the first time you reload a page
after a change, it takes slighty longer than usual. But restart the
server?! No way.
But I digress.
Every web developer ought to give JSP a try. In my view, it's important to
be up on the pros/cons of each technology in your field. At the very
least, it helps one dispell myths like the foregoing.
By the way, Servlets are pretty darn cool. You can do a lot more with
low-level HTTP than you can (easily) with PHP. They are great for writing
web apps that have to interact with other non-web applications. Servlets
power BYU's DOGMA distributed computing project for handing out job units.
But I have digressed again.
