Can we create rich ui pages just with jquery and rest services? I am planning on building a simple site with basic curd operations to manage few tables, and wondering if just jquery and rest services can do everything ?
all I care is some forms to create data with validation check , then grid to display data ?
Please advice and are there any framaeworks which integrate java, jsp, jquery ? I dont want to use all complex gwt, jsf or anyother framework, just a java script framework , html and java backend.

Absolutely. In fact that's a strong trend in the industry.

OK, now I'm confused. If what you asked above is what you want to do, then where does Java and JSP come into the picture?
Whether the REST service is written in Java or not is completely irrelevant. And if you are creating purely client-side pages, there's no JSP or Java needed for the views.

Nope. That's not the way client-side web apps are written. Usually such apps are what are known as SPAs (single-page applications) where the main page with all its boilerplate is loaded once, and the primary content is replaced as needed.
Linking and bookmarking are usually provided by "deep linking" which is hard to roll on your own; hence the suggestion to investigate the client-side frameworks if you want to head in this direction.
