"Pay as You Go" MVC in JSPs and Servlets

Java Server Pages (JSPs), with their simple script-like syntax, are easy to learn and understand and are well-suited for delivering features quickly.
However, JSPs do not use the Model View Controller design pattern (MVC), which is important in user interface development for long-term maintainability and reusability but requires much more developer expertise.
In order to benefit from the rapid development cycle and low expertise requirements for writing JSPs, but allow code to scale and be maintainable through MVC design patterns, developers should use coding strategies that take advantage of JSPs' high-level aspects in early iterations but easily migrate to more scalable joint JSP/servlet MVC models when that extra cost is warranted. By "paying as you go," features are quickly added, and only the JSPs that truly require an MVC architecture get that treatment and incur that cost.
