I have JSP running freely on my IIS server as well using Allaire Jrun. Also ASP can now run on ChilliSoft. I agree that the platform independance is nice, but the type of OS on servers your organization uses generally does not change so that might not be a factor. Pluss, you can extract business logic in ASP using DLL's with your script as well. I do like JSP however as you ahve the use of full fledge Java on the server and not a scripting language. Pure JSP runs about 30% faster then ASP but JDBC access may lag behine ASP.
