As always, the term "best" is vague at best. There are a number of Ajax frameworks out there and there will certainly be more coming in the near future. As the Ajax space matures I'm sure there will be consolidation in the framework arena where the best will continue to survive and the others will go away.

DWR is a popular Ajax/Java framework. It allows to you to call beans on the server side from JavaScript on the browser side. I'm partial towards the Taconite framework (http://taconite.sf.net), but probably because I'm Taconite's creator!

In short, do a Web search for "Ajax frameworks" and you'll surely get plenty of hits. Take a look at them -- each one does things a little differently and some may fit your needs better than others. Choose wisely -- remember, some of these frameworks may not be around in a year or two.

Good luck!

"adi",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!
