S2: need recommendation on plugin with jQuery, dojo, YUI and GWT

Hi there,

I would like to take my struts2 application one step fw and provide the end-users a better rich client interface (web2.0). Currently I'm using the <s: tags with ajax but i found it a bit limited.

I read about jQuery, dojo, YUI and GWT and wonder if anyone can recommend one of them. My aim, once again, is to have the site more user-friendly (or in other words cool).

Thank you.

They're all quite different in terms of functionality and mindset: which you use depends quite a bit more on you, the environment you're working in, and so on--there's no reasonable way to recommend one over any of the others.

I wouldn't discount Dojo, either; the S2 Dojo tags (which are deprecated, btw) use an older version of Dojo (0.4.3) that doesn't reflect the current state of the art in Dojo.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
