Absolutely true.

And that might influence what language/frameworks you choose, since,
for instance, Ruby on Rails comes with some Ajax stuff baked in, or if
you're a Java shop you might use DWR or Google's GWT. For that matter,
Struts2 and Grails also include direct Ajax support.

And FWIW, I just started using DWR -- Direct Web Remoting -- and it
rocks: access server-side Java objects directly from your client JS  :-)
