but it shocks me people still push JSP which in the evolution of web programming is still dragging it's knuckles next to ASP or coldfusion, the mixing of content and presentation is the exercise in stupidity

Wait... within the same sentence you're promoting ColdFusion and then saying mixing content and presentation is bad?

ColdFusion is designed around mixing content and presentation. Ever hear a talk from Macromedia people? If someone asks them about adding features that would enhance the actual ColdFusion language, they fight it. They try very hard to avoid adding advanced features. You want integration with other Macromedia products? Sure. But, say, better OO ? Not if they can help it. Remember, they thought it was a good idea to release the first OO version of ColdFusion without the ability to call the superclass when you override a method.
