Struts and Ajax

We have some new enhancements to our existing J2EE Struts based application.
New screens require rich GUI interface and thats why we are planning to use AJAX.

If i want to use AJAX in my existing struts application, what are my options?
Should i go with Ajax tag library or anything else?


Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Shriram

I would definitely advise that you not try to write everything yourself. There are a lot of good JavaScript libraries out there such as Dojo and Scriptaculo.us. I've also found that DWR works quite well in a Struts environment.

Yes, DWR works well with Struts. Just for DWR configuration in Struts environment I also used Spring MVC to configure DWR dispatcher servlet and POJO configuration. it is quite neat to configure DWR this way

Use PrototypeJs, Prototype is a JavaScript Framework that aims to ease development of dynamic web applications. http://www.prototypejs.org/

Or else for Rich Application use BackBase, http://www.backbase.com/
