During an offline discussion with Luciano, we discussed about the UI
technology. Had two choices: dojo and jQuery; finally we decided to use
dojo, since it is being used in PhotArk UI already. In case if we need more
features we can get them from jQuery or some other library. Also since using
technologies like JSP might lead to wrong separation of concepts, we decided
to use AJAX technologies like these.

I have started working on the UI layout for handling user profiles and will
continue implementing it using HTML + dojo.

If you have any different thoughts, please feel free to discuss your ideas
