General J2EE: J2EE and rich User Interfaces
Hi, I'm fairly new to J2EE. If I created an n-tier architecture with J2EE can I also incorporate much more involved User Interfaces instead of palin old HTML forms? What is the area (if any) that does this in J2EE? Do I have to incorporate Swing with my J2EE architecture?

One area should be the new JSF. With JSF, you can reuse the familiar event-driven coding model. You can also use lots of commercial and free packaged JSF components created by third parties. This web site't top news is also talking JSF with Ajax that gives user more interactions. Other areas such as Macromedia application server seem to be a little far away from J2EE developers then JSF. For an overview you can take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Internet_application
