By any chance are they going to make it easier to use servlets and JSP
without having to resort to JavaScript or applets?

For a java based web application it makes sense. Sun is doing that in
the next release of it's browser based admin tools. Remember that you
control the UI in that enviornment.

The user interface is up to the designers. The JavaHelp servlet demo is
just a demo showing one way of doing an implementation. It happens to
use JavaScript. I would encourage developers to use what ever tools they
are comfortable with to create the presentation consistent with the
applications that they have created. That's what was done in the Sun
Management Console and it's usage of JavaHelp on the Web. They are using
their own tree and list components for the navigators.
