Servlets are great to create dynamic functionality to web pages but it's not convenient to write (and to modify!) HTML code inside a Servlet using an enormous amount of printl statements that generate the HTML.

Velocity is a Template Engine that enables you to seperate the Servlet source code and the HTML code. Some advantages are: graphical designers can worh on the HTML code and Servlet programmers can create the servlets.
