good discussion -- yes, in general, generalization is too general... but i'm trying to glean opinions and anecdotes during a short downtime, so your observations and comments fit the bill and are much appreciated

my point on PL/SQL SP pain may have been lost (or never quite made) in terseness

[Quoted] from my experience with PSPs, they really are not Server Pages in the sense of JSP -- it's more of a pre-compiler kludge that is difficult to manage and promotes bad practice, specifically, tangling the UI, business, and data access logic into one lump. my preference, regardless of toolset, is to have as clean and clear a separation as possible between UI, Business Logic, and Data Access -- even if the same tool (ie, mod_plsql) is used for all 3 -- PSPs muck it up pretty badly

[Quoted] so, hopefully that sounds like technical reasons, even if perhaps a little bit of a zealot is showing
