Hi Rob, yeah partial updates are AJAX calls. The request contains the id of the control to be redrawn, innerHTML of that control is generated and returned to client which updates the page.
Nice idea with the agent to deploy the resources.

I'm new to XPages so these are useful. What are "partial updates"? Is this like using AJAX to update a list box with individual calls based on the actions of the user?
@Serving static resources from the disk - The way I've done this on databases that get distributed is to store the resources in the database and then have an installation agent that copies them to the correct location on the server. It isn't that hard as long as you build a manifest document that tells the agent what resources go where. This aids maintenance and serves to document the required resources.
