    Easy to get started with but the killer is having to implement the DataCapsule class in order to loop through a list of Objects on a page. I want to be able to use my classes as-is, not have to revamp them just to support exporting to CSV. Unfortunately, this is a deal-breaker and I'm having to switch over to Velocity as a result.

    Way cleaner than jsp. Can set up simple templates or try out some of the advanced features. Tag filters make presentation easy. The other reviewer is mistaken, since 2.1 you no longer need to box objects in DataCapsule class. Any non-private POJO or Bean object attribute is exposed to the template even within loops.
