Yes, that's true, Jtalk is for the client-side.

The truth is that I don't know or even if Jtalk will change Iliad. Sure
that could be great to make them work together, but here I would have to
deal with our existing apps, written in Iliad. Also, would people be
happy about it?

That's a good question. I don't know yet how exactly the server-side
would look like. A stateless server side serving dynamic pages in Jtalk
with a way to discuss with the server from Jtalk, like JSON data
exchanges, could be a good idea.

I think that the entire user interface can be written in Jtalk. Now you
would still need the server for the database, user identification, etc.
