Thanks for your comment.
Did you have any experience with struts jquery tag or other tags too?
Or you complete suggest that we write our own tags !

Subject: Re: AJAX Jsp tags

Don't use a JSP AJAX tag library. The dojo JSP tags didn't work well not
because of dojo or an fault of the tag authors, the technologies simply
don't mesh. It's as sane to program Java via XML as it is to program
JavaScript via XML.

XML is used for configuration. At first glance you think you'll only need
trivial behaviour but this is seldom ever the case,  JS UI components are
much easier to work with and you will need to provide your own handlers,
which are often required even in the simple cases. XML can not account for
all these cases and does not provides the means to add custom handlers in a
way that would be as simple as using the underlying JS framework naturally.

Further the tag authors often lag behind the UI components that they wrap,
the documentation and features often fall behind too.

With even a trivial understanding of JS you should be able to produce the
same results as the Tags in the same time frame, as you gain experience
you'll quickly superseded the capabilities of any tag library.
