I know that Prototype (*cough* "jQuery")is the library of choice for

you want a great case study, look at SalesForce.com and how they have
used ExtJS as their library of choice.
application talking with a RESTful Rails application works very well for
back-end applications. I can heartily recommend everyone to try it.
SproutCore and Cappuccino are among the alternatives.
There's this little chicken-and-egg problem between Ext JS and Rails
where the two have different interpretations of RESTful resources.
Nothing that a little customization can't fix, but following Rails
tradition it'd be great if Ext JS was compatible out of the box.
