Google Web Toolkit

Google Web Toolkit

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open source set of tools for building and optimizing complex browser-based applications. Its goal is to enable productive development of high-performance web applications without the developer having to be an expert in browser quirks, XMLHttpRequest, and JavaScript. It offers excellent development tools.

GWT is used by many products at Google, including Google Wave and the new version of AdWords. Other projects that use GWT include Go Grid, Lombardi Blueprint, Scenechronize, and Whirled.

Many common widgets not found in the GWT have been implemented in third-party libraries, such as Ext GWT, GWT Component Library, GWT-Ext, GWT Widget Library, GWTiger, Rocket GWT, Dojo, and SmartGWT.

  • GWT Designer lets you create user interfaces with tools for intelligent layout assist, drag-and-drop, and automatic code generation

  • Simple RPC mechanism
  • Browser history management
  • Support for full-featured Java debugging
  • GWT handles some cross-browser issues for the developer
  • JUnit integration
  • Man mix handwritten JavaScript in the Java source code using the JavaScript Native Interface (JSNI)
  • Support for using Google APIs in GWT applications (initially, support for Google Gears)

  • The JavaScript that the GWT compiler generates can be tailored to be either unobfuscated and easy to understand or obfuscated and smaller to download
  • A number of libraries are available for GWT, by Google and third parties. These extend GWT's features
  • Animations
  • Cookies
  • Easy internationalization
