Are you planning to use many jquery plugins and extensions or have you
considered using a component library or Ajax based framework to simplify
some of the ui design and implementation? We use JSF at work, which
wouldn't be suitable, but does allow use of a lot of high level Ajax js
components, which are handy. Something like GWT might allow a powerful ui
to be coded in Java. Flash or something like OpenLaszlo could provide a
radical ui. Zk I haven't used but looks interesting and there are lots of
other libraries like Dojo.
I have been using Amanuens and UserVoice recently, which have elegant and
functional web interfaces but unfortunately they use ASP.NET which I suppose
is very popular but I haven't used MS technologies for a long time.
