Web developers already know they can use Ajax to add rich, user-friendly,
dynamic features to their applications. With the Google Web Toolkit (GWT), a
can build Ajax applications using the Java language. GWT lets developers focus
on application design and functionality, rather than on browser differences, and
allows them to re-use code throughout the layers of their applications.
GWT in Practice
is an example-driven, code-rich book designed for web developers
who have already learned the basics of GWT. After a quick review of
GWT fundamentals, GWT in Practice presents scores of handy, reusable
solutions to the problems developers face when they need to move beyond
"Hello World" and "proof of concept" applications. This book skips the theory
and looks at the way things really work when developers are building projects
The GWT approach of using a static language to create cross browser compatible
code is becoming very popular even beyond Java and GWT. There is a
Microsoft effort to do the same using C#, along with Python and Ruby variants.
Based on mailing list activity, Java User Group focus and "buzz," GWT itself is
rapidly increasing in popularity. Java developers love using Java rather than
a widely used tool for Java developers.
