There is a sample application for the ZK AJAX desktop programming web framework that uses the POJOs in Action sample code as the back-end:

ZK uses AJAX to fire very fine grained events from the browser to Java UI controls in a desktop model attached to the session. With the AJAX response it updates parts of the DOM to reflect the changes to the desktop model on the server. This approach makes it radically easier to web program using pure desktop MVC patterns than with traditional web frameworks.
