Maven Project Info Reports Considered Dangerous

What if you want to do local storage? What if the user hits the back button?), you'll be a convert to the 'Frameworks are better' approach. So which Ajax enabled framework should you use as an Enterprise Java developer?

All I wanted was a simple rich-text editor that I could easily drop into an existing form in Struts. I ended up doing battle with too many competing frameworks and multiple hours of Javascript debugging. I finally settled on FCKeditor
