There are dozens, if not hundreds, of Ajax frameworks coming out of the woodwork,

Trying to predict which one will be best for you would be folly.

My advice is to learn the basics of Ajax without worrying about frameworks. Then you will be in a position to determine if you need a framework at all, and if so, which one.

I have worked on AJAXTags a bit. The newer AJAXTags version 1.3 has removed its integration with Struts, but you can always write your own simple Struts Action which is very well supported.

But again, there could be certain roadblocks like setting Request Attributes, which even the Action class wont be able to set, although there may be no errors while trying to set. [Just 4 knowledge] But you can always have various work-arounds to it.

I think its a nice framework keeping in mind the usage of interfaces like tabpanels, autocomplete select, portlets, etc.
