One of my colleague told me about this nice AJAX widget called timeline. Check it out http://simile.mit.edu/timeline/ and see for your yourself!
The "dragging" feature reminds me of google chart that is used to illustrate financial events reported in the news. Example at http://finance.google.com/finance?q=GOOG
We discussed more on the google's GWT - http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/ - Build AJAX apps in the Java language. For an insightful introduction, read this interview with the Google software engine on this project.
P.S. Reading of the "Project Guide" at http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/makinggwtbetter.html is espeically interesting, not only on "what it is" but also "how and why it comes", eg the author says what kinds of things GWT isn't about, (Not) Being a monolithic framework We don't like those all-or-nothing heavy "app frameworks" any more than you do. That's why we designed GWT to be made up of independently useful parts.
