Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] [jsp-dev] Splitting JSP-API IMPL off to a separate project

Not sure renaming to WaSP will actually mean much.

What about all of the stuff already using "jsp" elsewhere?
Like, what about the jsp namespace style of usage?
eg: <jsp:scriptlet> and <jsp:declaration>
Will we expect those to change too?

What about the filename extensions?
index.wasp ?

Seems like it will cause quite the ripple effect.

After all, to me, "JSP" is (J)akarta (S)erver (P)ages now.

The impl folder in the jsp-api project ( contains what was initially called the Sun JSP-RI implementation.

To make jsp-api a pure spec/api project, I think it would be best to split off the impl to its own project under github/eclipse-ee4j. This has been suggested before by various stakeholders.

I wonder what generally the thoughts are on this.

If positive, one thing we need is a name.

My own proposal would be "WaSP" - Web-application Server Pages, but there are probably more suggestions.
