Database publishing versus publishing JSP files - advice


We are new to Rhythmyx and are faced with the choice of publishing everything to a database, or publishing JSP files.

I would appreciate any advice or hearing about your experiences with this. Especially if anyone had implemented their web applications one way, only to switch to the other.

Our web applications currently read their content from a database, so publishing to a database would have little impact on our architecture. But publishing to a database means we would not take advantage of global templates or managed navigation in Rhythmyx.

Of course, even if we publish JSP files, we would still have to publish a lot of our content to a database to support the shopping cart pages of our sites. Also, although we currently do not have any user search functionality, we would have to publish a lot more content to a database to support it if we were to add that functionality.

Thank you for your time.
