What is a good front end to use for a Java web based game?

I'm creating a game that will be hosted on the google app engine, which technology would be best for the front end or user interace?

I'm thinking that an applet may not be suitable to my game, and neither will regular JSP pages, what other alternatives do I have?

It depends on the type of game you want to make. Flash is popular, but I think an applet with JOGL should work excellent.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
