There have been a lot of AJAX discussions in this forum lately. See here, for example. I've used it to turn an existing applet demo into a very similar demo in which the Java code runs on the server and the GUI runs in the browser. I think it's very cool. Is it a fad? Not so much, really; the underlying ideas and tecnologies have already been around for a while and are used quite broadly; just the buzzword -- and the range of exciting applications -- is new.

You may want to look at my blog. I posted a few articles on AJAX and a very simple example that does not involve the server.

You really do not have to use one of those frameworks out there, unless you are not really confortable writing the underlying JavaScript code. Tomorrow I will be posting a entry on my blog with a very basic server side example so look out for that.

Right now I am trying to finish up my last chapter for my book.

Eric

I thought this article was a good introduction; it's what I used to get started. But then Eric blogged something similar but better a few days later.
