I had some experience creating gui interfaces in html using simple Servlets/JSP, but it was very time consuming and error prone. So I was wondering what better high-level tools exist to help me build entry screens. I read a little about JSF and that seemed a good start, but is there anything more suitable?

The new system I will work on uses Hibernate/Spring.

Thanks!

You can have a look at ZKoss and I think it integrates well with Spring or for that matter they have a documentation which explains this integration. Apart from that there are lot of Javascript libraries which you can have a look at.

Also useful would be CSS frameworks- Bluetrip, Blueprint, YUI and so on, that provide you with the layout and other styling information.

I used Macromedia Dreamweaver to create fancy html UI's with css. And default editor comes with eclipse was used to write servlets and jsp pages.
