These examples might be useful: http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/examples/

Basically it's a Java to JavaScript compiler and UI toolkit. You can
write Java which is then magically compiled to a web application.

This is a great development. It might also help to generalize the JOSM
core more, right now it's very tightly bound to its current UI. It
would be neat if there was a Java libosm that could be used for stuff
like this, and things like Android apps.
