Tacos library project provides components and ajax behaviour for the Tapestry java web application framework.
It's intent is to provide a library of high quality components that may be used in your tapestry application, as well as provide a core infrastructure for using ajax related logic in these and your own components and pages.
The current alpha-4 release of tacos marks a very large milestone, in the form of full dojo integration/new effects parameters to link/form components/and general bug fixes and productionizing of new components.
Current development efforts are focused on the following items:
Dojo Integration: Most of the library now relies almost exclusively on dojo. Any parts not yet handled by dojo will be evaluated for alternatives, or patch submissions to eliminate most outside dependencies.
dojo - Serves as the basis for most of the tacos library functionality. The best js package available hands down.
Prototype - Currently seems to be one of the core library components that many other libraries are based on. Provides common fuctionality, like sending/recieving ajax requests, manipulating DOM structures and interacting with forms.
script.aculo.us - A library spun off of the prototype library that provides lots of common "Effects" and animation techniques. Also provides a few ajax components, like Autocomplete and in-place editing.
Rico - Yet another library based on the prototype package. Provides similar functionality to script.aculo.us, with the addition of more comprehensive components and animation techniques.
