One of the new beta developments at OpenSymphony includes a selection of JSP tags that create rich functional as well as good looking front-end components. It is hoped that this tag library will create a set of graphical widgets that can be embedded within web pages, somewhat similar to the GUI toolkit SWING.
This is a project I will be monitoring closely as it is similar to what I’ve been wanting to create for a while now. It will be interesting to see if the widgets created are cross browser compatible and XHTML standards compliant.
