Yeah, this type of stack is very nice. Although the bad name that is  
stuck to Swing (not entirely undeserved), and too much AJAX hype (not  
entirely deserved) is what holds its adoption. I am also waiting for  
the Web Start improvements.

Appreciate more feedback on that. We'll certainly be working on  
improving that.

Also related - 3.0 already has callback functionality discussed here  
recently - this is *the* way to add server-side logic and makes the  
entire ROP stack much more powerful.
