Struts 2 integrates very nicely with DOJO. GWT is a whole different animal, and doesn't really integrate very well with any other web framework.

As was said, GWT is off the table.

If you want something lower-level, you can also consider Prototype or jQuery.

That's like asking "which tool is better, a hammer or a saw?". A hammer is better for pounding nails, but a saw is better for cutting wood.

The same principle applies here. Client-side code is the best way, and sometimes the only way to do certain tasks. Likewise server-side code is the best way to do other tasks. Most any good modern web application will make judicious use of both types of code.

Thanks all for your replies.

Mr. Merrill, I think I'll try to use hummer and saw together, but most likely I'll use more DOJO's.

Thanks again.
