Google Stuff + GWT – Platform of the future?


GWT – Google Web Toolkit – Is the open source development platform from google.

To cut it short, have you experience using gmail or google+? Did you noticed how it process request from a user input? Its like theres a very rich Ajax Engine right?

Well indeed google uses the power of javascript heavily in their application and this is what GWT is all about. Think of GWT Platform as an Ajax Platform, yet google put something in between to solve issues in browser compatibility (quirks, tweaks and Javascripts) and as a developer, it only requires you to know either Java (J2SE) or Python (right, no javascript).

GWT Development Workflow:

  1. Developer Write Java Code
  2. Developer Compile Java Code
  3. Compiler will check for errors and compile
  4. Compiler will generate Javascript Files from the Java Code
  5. Javascript Files will be embedded on your HTML
Thats why you don’t have to know Javascript! GWT SDK will uses your Java code, compile them to Javascript codes that can be used for your HTML pages! 🙂
Do you think GWT can actually be use to develop and implement Enterprise Business Applications – on Cloud – on demand? I think its possible, though we need further POCs for that. 🙂
