Niether are particularly good at producing a sensible system.

JSPs are great for displaying stuff, but suck at doing anything - big
scriptlets are unmanageable.

Similarly Servlets are much better suited at making code to do stuff, but
suck at outputting html with their million and one  "response.write" lines.

Take a look at struts (struts.apache.org), it marries the two up nicely.
Actions for code to do stuff (similar to servlets) and JSPs for display (ie
html, JSTL, etc).
