Getting Started Let’s GWT Down to Business


In this chapter, we’re going to turn some of the promises of GWT into reality. To keep it simple and focused on the development aspects that are unique to GWT, we’re going to stay on the client side and leave the server side for later chapters. As I said in the previous chapter, one of the most important things about GWT is that it lets you develop AJAX applications in a familiar Java ecosystem. The most significant advantage of this is the full-featured refactoring support that a modern API gives us. For that reason, I’m going to present the project in iterative steps, which will mimic a real development process and show off how easy it is to do rapid prototyping in GWT.
