All of the J2EE 1.4 specs (including Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0) will go
final sometime mid-2003-ish.  It's not legal for any product to ship a
final release that implements these specs until the specs go final.  This
makes perfect sense when you think about it, since a non-final spec can
still be changed, possibly in a way that makes the "final" product not

When a particular *implementation* of the new specs is product quality,
though, is a separate question, and one that really needs to be addressed
to the container provider.  For example, I wouldn't be surprised to see
Tomcat 5 (implements Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0) become pretty high quality
before the specs go final (since it's mostly an evolution of Tomcat 4.1);
it just won't be final itself (even if that happens), because such a thing
would not be allowed.
