JavaScript and/or Java-based browser clients (JSP, JSF etc)?

Bear has on occasion been fairly critical of how some of the Java-based tools for browser client development (e.g. JSF) are used today. Do you see sophisticated JavaScript clients - with all the extra functionality provided by AJAX and the various JS frameworks - replacing JSP/JSF etc for web client development, or more as a complementary technology?

There is a lot of interesting work going on in this area. How it will all shake out is anyone's guess.

Of particular interest is the use of Node.js on the server, and frameworks like Backbone.js that brings MVC to the client.

Express.js is another one to watch.

It's hard to see where everything will gel at this point, but there's a lot of interesting work going on that might soon challenge JEE as king of the hill.
