JSP UIX BC4J vs. UiXML BC4J

What are the advantages and disadvantages between using "JSP UIX BC4J" and "UiXML BC4J". I'm interested in knowing more about performance and flexibility.

    well we don't have any offical public documents but
    here are some comments I have gathered from our team:

    The short answer is that JSP + UIX + BC4J gives poorer performance than BC4J + uiXML, but allows you to use your favorite JSP taglibs.

    Also, there is currently limited support in the JSP editor for UIX JSP tags, and I the uix jsp tags will eventually
    be phased out in the next release of UIX that works with
    Faces.

    Do you mean just the BC4J UIX JSP tags, or all the UIX JSP tags?

    This post might help explain how UIX will be transitioning
    when faces comes around:

    UIX -> JSF example?

    Also the UIX (JSP and XML) BC4J tags are being phased
    out to use the ADF Data Binding stuff from JDeveloper 10G.

    You pointed me at my own thread. :)

    I've got a fairly good sense of how the UIX will go to JSF now, but when you said the UIX JSP tags would be phased out, I wanted some clarification because one of the alternatives we were thinking about was using JSPs with the UIX JSP tags. The advantage of this would be sticking with JSP technologies rather than switching to UIX. The disadvantage would be that, if we go with UIX for now, you will migrate that to JSF for us, whereas if we go with just the UIX JSP tags, we would have to do the migration to JSF ourselves. However, if you will be desupporting the UIX JSP tags, then we would probably want to choose between UIX and JSPs with some other tag library.

    Sorry about that, too many posts to OTN lately. Anyway
    I would think that the UIX JSP issue would be just like
    the UIX XML issue. That the UIX JSP language would change
    just like the UIX XML language and would converge on
    something that would work well with faces. The difference
    between UIX XML and UIX JSP is that we would provide an
    upgrade tool for XML but not JSP.
