In the current download 
(, all samples are 
designed to be shown only in the context of a JSP-enabled servlet 
container, even though the samples don't require one per se.

Why then the reliance on JSP for the delivery of the samples? IMHO, 
that somehow rises (if only slightly) the barrier for people exploring 
the actual donation. And from the description of the scope, I 
understand the idea is to make sure the Ajax client library and widgets 
are independent from any server-side runtime execution context.
