-1. We already talked about this and it is a bad idea that weakens
compatibility (the whole point of the JCP/Java EE).

I remember back on the Java EE 6 expert group we talked about having a
"minimal profile" with only Servlet & JSPs (I remember Rod Johnson being
interested in such profile, Roberto Chinicci even wrote a few blog posts
about it :
I have a few concerns with this. First of all, JSPs are not evolving : it is
a poor UI framework (no Ajax and so on) and is not a templating fwk either.
Second, except if I'm missed something on Servlet 3.1, we don't have a simple
controller to build MVC web apps. With just Servlets and JSPs, we miss the
controller. I remember that the JAX-RS 1.1 and Servlet 3.0 expert group
talked about it, but I think nothing happened.
For me, such a minimal profile would make sense with a proper templating
framework, Expression Language and a simple servlet controller (à la Spring
My 2 cents

I'd also like to suggest a simple Servlet or Basic profile. It would include
servlets, JSP, EL, CDI and JAX-RS. Essentially tomcat / jetty with CDI and
JAX-RS integrated. This would give a very powerful programming environment
(namely CDI and JAX-RS) as a strong base and also allow our friends
developing tomcat and jetty to join in and be a Java EE compliant server! Oh,
and JSF would then run purely in a Java EE environment, no more "pseudo EE
container" aka Servlet container.
