Thoughts on a simple web app

Hi All... not sure if this is the correct section for my query.
I am trying to implement a UI based interface to add/edit business rules defined in XML (a set of input and output parameters).

I am thinking of making this a web application, typical MVC with xerces for the XML transformation and a JSP front end.

My requirement is to have a dynamic set of INput/Output parameters at the client side itself. I need to give the end user flexibility to input as many rows in the front end as possible without going to the server. This would be cumbersome javascript coding.

Is there a better way to implement this?

No, this sort of thing is common with DHTML these days.

It depends on a lot of other factors.
You'd have to tell us more about who's using it and the environment in which it's used. Again, these days, a lot of people are doing away with plugins and maintenance of client side components by using plain HTML and Javascript to build rich front ends.
