Direct Web Remoting
Direct Web Remoting or DRW is a framework for creating AJAX websites with Java and JSP's.  Once again, if you know me, I'm not a Java fan, and avoid it if I can.  DRW looks very promissing to me, and I plan on creating some enterprise level applications using it in the very near future.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

It seems like creating web services in Java is overly complicated, but it's probably because I don't use Apache Ant enough.  It looks to if you really want to be a great Java developer, you need to be excellent with Apache Ant.  Unfortunatly, there isn't all that great of documentation out there for Apache Ant, so you have to dig through complicated technical documents and download samples to try and figure out what the hell is going on.  If anyone knows of a really good Apache Ant book, I would love to know about it.

If I figure out some simple examples of Ant, I'll post them on this website.
