I think that it should not be too complex to combine GWT front end
with Struts backend. I haven't tried it yet but does it really matter,
pure servlet or Struts Action, it is just a URL after all. GWT is new
and fun, yet it might allow to reuse existing skills if not code.
Struts would be used for server-side validation, model/database
access/update, state management.

Looking into Ajax future I think that from both developer and user
perspective GWT/Struts can be a sensible option for rich web
applications in comparison with JSF/Shale/ICEFaces/whatnot. Opinions?

I know, I know, "It is up to you to make it happen" ;-)
