News: GWT adds OS X support in version 1.2.11

  1. GWT adds OS X support in version 1.2.11 (3 messages)

    Google Web Toolkit, a toolkit for creating cross platform javascript (AJAX) applications in java, has just released version 1.2 that includes support for debugging on OS X. Other major improvements include: faster hosted mode, better HTTP request support, and an improved tree widget. There were also quite a few not so major additions in this release. Note that IDEA users may have some problems using version 1.2.11; the IDEA GWT integration has a bug that prevents successful compilation from within the IDE. (It's a sure bet that IntelliJ will be fixing this soon.) GWT is only one of the AJAX-centric application frameworks out there; if you've tried it, what were your opinions of it? What would you improve or change?

  2. Good![ Go to top ]

    Now I can consider using it. Not sure what the big hold up was anyways.
  3. License Problems[ Go to top ]

    Here is a nice introduction Java News Brief article to the Google Web Toolkit (GWT): http://www.ociweb.com/jnb/jnbOct2006.html So according to the article, it seems that the license is quite restrictive in comparison to other AJAX toolkits.

    IMHO It is right and wrong at same time. Here is short summary of GWT license == The GWT Java class libraries used to build your applications are open source under the Apache License, Version 2.0. == in other words with compiled code you can do what ever you want. == The GWT Java-to-JavaScript compiler and hosted web browser are shipped binary-only and subject to the license below. ... you may not distribute Google Web Toolkit Development Tools or any services or software associated with or derived from them, or modify, copy, license, or create derivative works from Google Web Toolkit Development Tools, unless you obtain Google's written permission in advance. ... Privacy notice: When you use the Google Web Toolkit's hosted web browser, the application sends a request back to Google's servers to check to see if you are using the most recent version of the product. As a part of this request, Google will log usage data including a timestamp of the date and time you downloaded the Google Web Toolkit and the IP address for your computer. == In other words Google what's you neither to make any modification to it's toolkit nor even redistribute it and yes, google is going to spy. It seems the era of "Google - Our informal corporate motto is "Don't be evil" is over. Welcome back to earth guys ;-) Regards, Vitaliy S
