What put me off is that the XMLC model binds too tightly the "model" and
"controller" to the "view" (MVC architecture). The UI designer's "range
of motion" is more limited with XMLC than, say, JSP+Struts. You'll bump
into walls quicker with XMLC when you want a certain UI change and
discover that the required changes are trickling into the pure Java
code, and not limited to the template. That's just been my experience.
Perhaps that's because the industry-wide set of "best practices" is more
mature with the JSP/Struts approach than the XMLC approach. At least,
that was the case when I looked many months ago.
