Of course you'd have to store lots of data for the user, etc including
registration information, etc. You might do better to store it in a
cookie on the client side, and restore from the local data. As for
AJAX frameworks, I've had good luck with using the GWT (Google Web
Toolkit) for doing heavy-lifting on the client side. Google even
claims there is a client-side portion of the library that handles XML
parsing, etc. You can do some impressive things with it, and it's
designed to integrate with a Java/Servlet back end (reminds me that I
promised to write up a chat room for Troy - I'll do it this weekend, I
promise! Classes have been a doosey this week with both of them having
their big projects due).
I'm not sure of the storage limits of cookies, but I would imagine
that maintaining the user's data as far as the basic information about
their progress wouldn't be difficult.
