JSP hasn't lost anything. I am an ASP programmer switching over because large companies are moving to it for scalability. They fell behind because ASP was first to market and it was a great thing. However, the continued reinvention of ASP with this new c# and what not has driven me out. And Java is much more elegant and powerful then VBscript which is utter crap. So dont end the race the race when it has only just begun.

Performance wise, it is not clear which is faster as it so much depends on the platform they are running. I have found ASP requires more CPU on ther Web server while JDBC requires more resources on your DB server but that is running on NT. I expect the platform really makes a difference.
