What is the best view technology for use with Spring?
What view technology currently has the best integration with spring? I have done mostly JSP/JSTL development, but I find the lack of good taglibs for Spring annoying. Do any of the other technologies have better support/integration?
Are there any switchers here, going from JSP to Velocity or Freemarker? What is your experience? Did it make things easier?

There are some jsp 2.0 tag macros that are in development right now which are more like struts tags and reduce the amount of code in your jsps.

Right now we're a Cold Fusion shop. I'd like to start moving us toward a Java platform, if only to boost performance and get better automated testing.
But I'm not sure the company would drop CF to do it. A complete re-write is not realistic right now, so there would have to be a period (could be forever) of coexistence/collaboration.
Since it's Java-based and can call Java objects directly, I wondered if anyone had ever tried it with Spring?
Or if anyone's switched from CF to Spring, I'm curious to hear about the experience.
