I Like JSP but the only thing that I dislike about it is There are no cheap hosting service available with JSP as much are there for PHP.

This is true.

Nowadays, pretty much every host has PHP installed(and Perl and CGI), but no JSP, which I kind of understand. You need to have another server like Tomcat installed. Generally, it uses more memory. It is generally more difficult to manage. Etc. etc. etc.

Too bad though. It's a great language.

I somehow came to dislike everything that has anything to do with Java. It's because it usually requires additional plug-ins like that Java Runtime Library so that you can use it and display sites writtent in Java language. I hate visiting sites that make my browser pop-up a windows requireing me to download java rintime so i can see the part of the site.
I therefore think it's not really a good option for webmasters since it can reduce your site's publicity.

JSP is server side not client side.

The troublesome thing about JSP is the configuration part on Apache Tomcat. If it'd have been friendler, life would have been much more easier.
