GWT Home: http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/ Download: http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/download.html Announcement: http://googlewebtoolkit.blogspot.com/2008/08/gwt-15-now-available.html Developer's Guide: http://code.google.com/docreader/#p=google-web-toolkit-doc-1-5 This has been a big development cycle, and we're really excited about the advancements in GWT over the last year. As always, we're eager to hear your feedback once you've tried this new version. GWT 1.5 would not have been possible without the immense contributions of code and ideas from the GWT open source community. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Cheers, The GWT Team

    Congratulations to the GWT team and community. I've just looked at the component showcase and would like to post some humble opinions (maybe there are some components that I missed): - no calendar component? - when I expand all the nodes in the tree on the left and go to the nodes at the bottom, I cannot see what is happening on the right due to my low resolution screen. - no tree table component? - no data table scroller? I know that many of you, who are GWT experts, will say that it is easy to implement that, but, in my opinion, it'll be easier if that component is already there, right? :) - no scrollable data table? I know that many of you .... is already there, right? :) - no drag drop support? - I can make a vertical menu, right? - no progress bar? - it would be nice if the file upload component had a progress bar - no tool tip? - ability to access Google maps? Congratulations again and thank you for an excellent toolkit.

    There are existing solutions for just about everything you listed. Heck, the main GWT website has a link to drag and drop support. A google search would find pratically everything you've listed available as 3rd party controls.

    Try GWT EXT librarary. I don't know how it works with latest GWT release but it works well with previous. http://code.google.com/p/gwt-ext/ http://www.gwt-ext.com/demo/ Are you still missing something? Pavel

    From there site: "Ext is not bundled with GWT-Ext. Ext 2.0.2 has several licensing options available to fit a variety of needs. LGPL 3.0 is one of them. The license can be found in the Ext 2.0.2 distributable or here." So, if I understand correctly, in order to remain LGPL, they are forced to stick with EXT pre 2.1. If that is the case, is there going to be some attempt to maintain and build upon this version of the EXT library? If not, that seems to be a big problem. Seems like EXT put them (and many others) in a bad spot.

    From their site, I should say :)

    - Check the GWT Incubator site, it has most of the widgets you mentioned: http://code.google.com/p/gwt-incubator

    Google maps?

    Congratulations again and thank you for an excellent toolkit.

  10. MVC Lacking[ Go to top ]

    Add to your list these BASIC GUI Components (availble in the Holy Grail GUI Framework Swing): - TableModel Interface + Default Implementation + Events & Support - TreeModel Interface + Default Implementation + Events & Support - TreeNode Interface + Default Implementation Anything else is just a hack. These should be in the GWT library, not some Incubator or thirdparty. Our method here: 1. Create a class that implements the Swing Interface. 2. Extract our GWT interface from this class. 3. Rename Interface from class in step 1 to our GWT interface.

    For your information: ItsNat lists, tables and trees are based on Swing data and selection models. Wicket tree component uses tree data model of Swing too. WingS and Echo are heavily inspired in Swing.

    Congrats to GWT team and everyone who contributed to this excellent toolkit. We have been using it for the last 6 months and everyone loves it. It speeds up the UI development dramatically and makes building JavaScript-heavy clients a reality. Very, very nice work. The biggest drawback IMHO for GWT right now is the unimpressive set of widgets. It's gotten better in 1.5 but still it's clearly lagging behind the likes of ExtJS, jQuery and YUI. For our project we've actually selected GXT and were able to build a really cool UI that the end users are ecstatic about. Hopefully, GWT will get there and of course it's up to us as community to help build those widgets. Another issue we've ran into are modular applications. GWT compiles everything into one giant JavaScript file that has to load entirely before the first line runs. It would have been nice to have some kind of a shared library concept that would be loaded once and reused between GWT modules. But the technology is awesome and definitely a big step forward. Once again, great job and congratulations.

    Great stuff. Eat it up. My take is that with the 1.5 foundation solid now is the time when component libraries will take off. gwt-incubator looks raw but promising. I had started with gwt-ext but factored it out after the licensing change. I couldn't ever see going back to Struts/JSF/"Fat-server" frameworks. REST-ful services are so much more versatile.
  14. Re: GWT 1.5 Now Available[ Go to top ]

    Congrats! This framework looks like it could be a real force in the Java world. I am a bit concerned about the lack of robust controls out of the box though. Seems kind of incomplete with out calendar, pageable data views, etc. However, I think this framework has a bright future. I look forward to not having to deal with JSF. -Mike

    Umm DOM Packages seems inspired in ItsNat Very interesting :)
  16. GWT Maven[ Go to top ]

    I don't understand why this release is not in GWT Maven Repo. Actually not even RC2 is there :(
  17. Re: GWT 1.5 Now Available[ Go to top ]

    Really nice that all code changes are picked up without restarting the proces

    Congrats to the GWT team. I've tried out Flex and GWT .. I like GWT more. It represents a huge leap forward in rich web application development. If your thinking about RIA/RWA platform you need to take a look at GWT 1.5. I'm hoping the components in the incubator make it into the next version of GWT.
