Templating in Java: What to use?
April 9, 2008
Right away, Velocity stands out given the reputation of the Apache Foundation. Looking at Jxp, though, it’s appealing to be able to use standard Java code with the JSP-like syntax. If we can believe the FreeMarker site comparing it to Velocity, FreeMarker has better support for number and date manipulations (among other things), which could be particularly important for my uses.
I haven’t tried any of these engines out, yet. Rest assured, though, that I will try them and post my findings.
