Well if you want to have a presentation layer you are going to need HTML. JavaScript is used to add to the user's experience.

You can use XML, but it is not going to look nice to the end user. Just a plain old tree in their browser.

If you hate the front end, that is why would work in teams and you find a person that likes that stuff!

Google Web Toolkit - GWT might be for you. I would not touch it

There are countless other libraries out there that take the pain out of learning JavaScript such has JQuery, Prototype.js, Dojo, MooTools, ExtJS, etc.

GWT (Google Web Toolkit) replaces some of the HTML/CSS and JavaScript with Java code.

That might be a bit misleading.

GWT generates (not replaces) the HTML and JavaScript from Java code that describes the desired UI. Like Eric, I personally think it's a crock, and extremely limiting, but for someone who only wants to write Java and doesn't care too much what the UI looks like, it might be the ticket.
