My assignment strongly mentions that providing strong visual feedback is of great priority. Is this enough to conclude that the use of AJAX/JSF is required?

Thanks for your comments!

Flash?

In all seriousness... How does AJAX give you strong visual feedback? It's just a way to asynchronously communicate with the server.

I don't actually recall Ajax as an exam objective.

I'd probably think of comparing JSF against Applets or Swing for full featured GUI effects considering that this is a Sun exam.

I agree with you, but the PetStore blueprint application uses a combination of JSF and AJAX. I also remember seeing AJAX as being the option in the step 1 multiple choice questions. Also, this is a web-application so there is no question of swing and I don't think applets are a good choice because there is no interaction with the client's workstation.

Yes, Flash (specially flex) provides strong visual feedback but I want to stick with Sun technologies and open web standards.

Thanks!
