Submission + - Server-side vs client-side RIA programming?

jole writes: "Currently Flex is the king of declarative RIA frameworks, GWT is the best client-side Ajax framework for Java-programmers and JSF is the most dominant declarative server-side framework. In addition to these classes of frameworks, we find that server-side Java-based (not XML-based) UI frameworks still have their place for two reasons: 1) security gained from not exposing UI logic to client, 2) easiness gained for direct access to all Java API:s, full unrestricted execution environment and lack of communication layer design.

What is your opinion — which approach (client- or server-side; Java, XML or JavaScript) is the best and why? What is your favorite RIA toolkit for Java programmers?"
