JSP 2.0 XML format - any experience or recommendation

I am going to rewrite a large web application. Is the JSP XML format
worth investigating? Has anyone else tried it with IJ?

We're reimplementing it for the moment. Some noteworthy stuff is already
working there though including extract method to list just one.

Why? What do you think you'll gain by using the xml syntax instead of jsp syntax? I'd hope that IDEA would support both, and in fact would imagine that the support for jsp syntax would be better simply because there will be more people using it and reporting bugs in it.

I'm not so sure about that. From what I can tell, the XML format will
probably work better because it has a defined structure. Maybe Maxim
can give a better answer.

Yeah same argument could have been applied to jsp 1.1 and 1.2, yet the jsp syntax is better supported, I think.

Well, same level of feature support is planned for both jsp syntax for
sure. We've just started from xml syntax because it appeared to be a
work from 'blank sheet' instead of refactoring current jsp support.
