Introducing Rich Internet Applications (RIAs)


The Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open source framework that makes building RIAs easy for Java developers. You can use your Java expertise to build “fat clients” that can be deployed as web applications. These desktop-like applications are typically written in JavaScript in order to leverage the huge installed base of web browsers. But JavaScript is quite a different language from Java (its name was chosen for marketing reasons) and therefore requires different development practices.
