Hi Paritosh,

I cared a bit about the JSP block at least being working in the last 
years, but I have never used it in a project. So the knowledge is still 
bit limited, but I might know some limitations of Cocoon's JSPEngine 
itself. For example there are probably no forwards and includes possible.

At the end the problem is that JSPs are not well-supported running 
inside Cocoon and we have never recommended using JSPs. But this will 
change in Cocoon 2.2 as it will work more on the servlet level. It's no 
longer a Cocoon webapp started by the servlet container, handling a JSP 
request delegating to a JSPEngine which at the end calls again the 
servlet container - with problems setting up a correct environment for 
handling them. Cocoon will be able to integrate with other servlets much 
better and so also with JSPs. This will even make the JSP block superfluous.
