Rich internet applications

Hello:

I am working on a prototype with a deadline of June 29.
Preferably I would like to make it a web application vs an application.
Currently I have some JSP files and servlets that are the beginnings of my application.
I am using Eclipse Indigo. I did look at Google GWT but do not want to do RPC calls, prefer to call servlets.
However I am in need of things for displaying and selecting my data. I do not want to roll
my own code for this since that would be time consuming. Are there any libraries I could use?

Thanks
Brian

That would greatly depend on what types of "things" you need.

we have a very large dataset. we would like to be able to do something similar to the GWT cell box browser.
but essentially we need to be able to display the data, allow selection of data, and then use that as a query against
a data source. In addition they should be able to save off the selections so they do not need to select again, but rather
load a profile.

There may be tag libraries that meet your needs. I've rolled my own so I'm not sure what might be applicable. There are also jQuery plugins that might do the trick.

Thanks I will take a look. Is there a popular repository for tag libs?

Apache commons has a bunch. But your best bet is likely a google search.
