Which web application framework do you recommend?

Hi guys,
it has been quite a long time since I published my last post. Sorry for that. Now that summer has finally arrived in Germany, it seems that every day there is an event after work. So I haven't found much time for developing. But one of my goals for the next few weeks is to release the first version of a Basketball Software, which a friend of mine asked me to do develop. I am not happy with the progress I am making, but my real life projects have a higher priority.
Considering this Basketball App, I started setting up the entity model, set up the workspace including a hudson environment (I love hudson, even for a one man project) and wrote the first session beans. I chose EJB3 for the backend part. However, what I haven't decided yet is the front-end part. I have done some projects using different JSF implementations, but I am thinking about whether I should try out something else. Can anyone of you recommend me something?
What about JavaFX? How good is the integration with JavaEE?
What about Wicket, GWT or Google Gears?
I'd love to do an evaluation for all of the implementations. Maybe I ll find some time to create one feature (like the createNewPlayer userInterface) with each of the frameworks. But if anyone out there has already done this evaluation, I would be very grateful. soon as I reached a certain progress level, I will write something about the upcoming application.

Have a great day..

  1. The JSR-296 Swing Application Framework prototype implementation is a small set of Java classes that simplify building desktop applications. The prototype provides infrastructure that's common to most desktop applications:

    Application lifecyle, notably GUI startup and shutdown.
    Support for managing and loading resources, like strings, formatted messages, images, colors, fonts, and other types common to desktop applications.
    Support for defining, managing, and binding Actions, including Actions that run asynchronously (in the "background").
    Persistent session state: support for automatically and selectively saving GUI state from one run of an application to the next.
