Does anyone know the pro's or con's between developing a site for 2k users in either JSP or ColdFusion? What is faster development done in? How well does JSP scale when compared to coldfusion?

In terms of development, CF is definitly faster than JSP. People familiar with HTML can catch CF quickly and easily. I haven't noticed any real difference in terms of performances. However don't take me wrong, maintaining a big CF application is a nightmare compared to a clean MVC/JSP solution.

Also, the next CF version will run as a tag-library with any J2EE compliant server.
