Here’s a brain dump of my current thoughts on Web Frameworks:

  • Click with OpenRico. A simple and effective however there are some gaps for more complex flows. Some good OpenRico examples for simple DHTML effects and AJAX.

  • Wicket. More complicated than Click and generates less HTML for you. However, it would work well with Web designers - templates are valid XHTML. I like it but the documentation leaves something to be desired.

On the radar is JSF, GWT, Tibco GI, Yahoo UI, Dojo:

will update again soon…
