Industry news: Google Web Toolkit: The best way to build large Web 2.0 apps

  1. &otA case study of the Lombardi Blueprint process mapping tool was recently posted to the GWT developer blog. Blueprint is a multi-thousand line Web 2.0 application that we've developed over the last year or so. After trying and abandoning Flash and Dojo based versions of the app, we settled on GWT for its far superior ease of debugging, code size, and execution speed. The refactoring support we get from being able to code in Java and use IntelliJ/Eclipse made it a slam dunk. Check out the case study for the full rundown. What have others experienced in this area? Have you used GWT or has a pure HTML/Javascript solution worked for you?
  2. We are using GWT to build up large enterprise banking application. Presentation layer is built completely on GWT. On server-side we use Spring, Hibernate and other known technologies. Maven 2 is used as a build tool and the application is deployed on Weblogic server. GWT is one of the best existing frameworks to build Web applications in Java. Leo
