I don't think you understand what I said. I don't say that you and I can't 
qualify other solutions, but if this guy cannot qualify why it makes more 
sense to use Velocity than JSP for a given project then his management
will choose JSP. If you don't know why you change, then why bother changing ?
It's a bit the same for other server technology, we all know Linux is more
stable than Windows, we all know PostgreSQL is a more robust and faster
database solution than MySQL, etc. But people still use the latter technology ?
Why ? Because they like to continue using what they already know, and in some
cases that is fine, it really depends on the scope of the project.
