Sing Li have written the part 2 of Kick-start your Java apps (Require registration), Easy, lightweight Ajax development with no-charge software. In this tutorial using JDK, DB2 Express-C, WebSphere Application Server, Eclipse, and DWR the author explain step by step how to create an employee-information panel using standard JSP and servlet technology. The tutorial is very well explained and you may get the Part 1 also which will help to download, install and test the necessary software.

The tutorial discusses some of the limitations of the JSP application design and shows how a lightweight Ajax-based solution can help to overcome them. It introduces basic Ajax concepts and a popular Java toolkit called Direct Web Remoting (DWR). You'll convert the application to a lightweight design. The redesigned application resides within an HTML page hosted on Application Server acting as a simple Web server, accessing DB2 Express C database information directly using Ajax and JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) serialization.
