UIs

I'm really tired of all the various web and Swing frameworks for producing user interfaces. Especially, when they don't have separate views and controllers. Perhaps the thing to do, is not only open up development of Swing and the new Java Server Faces but to combine them into one framework. It would then scale up or down depending on where it's rendered (events could live on the client in a Javascript or Java client or on the server in a thin web client) via Java Server Faces RenderKit (extending it from the default HTML 4 one even). Stealing an idea from another framework using XSLT to generate the Java code so that it can be used in Java IDEs.
