I remember reading that Wicket has native support for AJAX, and Tapestry has some components that support AJAX as well.

To the best of my knowledge, Struts/Spring does not have any build in support for AJAX. But there may be extensions or libraries that make it easy to use AJAX through Struts/Spring.

Hava a look at Direct Web Remoting project, it might be what you are looking for.

Hello "sikander",

Please review the JavaRanch Naming Policy and then change your publicly displayed name so that it complies with the policy. Thanks for your cooperation.

WebWork 2.2 has an Ajax theme for our UI widgets. This lets you do things like have a DIV which is automatically refreshed from the server every 10 seconds, for example. We use the Dojo toolkit and make heavy use of the dojo.event.topic functionality which lets you set up publish/subscribe topics in your page. This lets you have some parts of your page generate events and have n other parts of the page get the event and update themselves or do some other action, all without having to hard-wire the pieces together. It makes for a nice, loosely coupled way of building in-page AJAX applications with reusable components.
 
What's gotten into you? Could it be this tiny ad?
