If a product is developed using J2EE(JSP, EJB and DB) with a web based browser interface intially, what are all the issues related to UI Flexibility needed to be taken care to accomdate
1. Different Client types at a later time
2. Just changing the UI features(Colors, layout) in the web browser interface itself.

Any patterns to be used? any articles?

The flexibility range of style sheets is not far enough, I think.

I prefer a concept keeping every layout off the individual application. If you want to see samples how to change layout and adapt UI syntax retrospectively without touching your application code, see the Open Source project Cameleon at http://www.must.de/cameleon.html - it uses the same approach for building Swing and HTML user interfaces (!!!).

I think MVC is suitable for that.

check out java.sun.com/j2ee/blueprints. sun has created a nice framework for web-based application and you can get a lot of details about it there. take a look at some UML they have and code for a fully operational web-based j2ee application.
