Unless I'm not understanding it right, ZKoss looks like it requires some web 
server configuration in order to run.  Flex doesn't, which is nice for people 
like me who work in server environments they can't control.  But it looks like 
awesome tech! Am I right about it needing server side configuration?

Yes, we have also abandoned Flex in favor of ZKoss. Since we are already a Java 
shop, on the server side, it seemed logical to use a Java based framework on 
the client-side.

The thing I really like about ZK or ZKoss is that it has equivalent components 
to Flex. In fact, it actually has more components than Flex.

It implements an approach that I really like of separating the UI into 
appearance and behavior - much like the Spark components of Flex. Well, not 
exactly, but sort of. :) Here's what I mean. For each UI object, it has a 
client side (widget) and server side (component). I won't go into further 
detail, but it gives you a nice separation of concerns that you can avail 
yourself of. This feature also greatly insulates the rendered pages from 
x-browser compatibility issues.

Check it out for yourself at their site (zkoss.org).
