Google Web Toolkit 2.6.0

An open source Java framework developed by Google that makes writing AJAX and Web-based applications a much more easier for developers
Writing dynamic Web applications today is a tedious and error-prone process.

Developers spends most of their time working around subtle incompatibilities between Web browsers and various platforms, while JavaScript's lack of modularity makes sharing, testing, and reusing AJAX components difficult and annoying.

The Google Web Toolkit, or simply GWT, lets the developer use standards compliant tools for writing Web apps, tools tested and used by Google's own team when building famous tools like Gmail or Google Maps.

When it comes to the actual process, GWT lets developers write the frontend in Java code, and when done it compiles it to standards and browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML source code.

Because Java is a much more malleable programming language, developers spend less time, write less code but achieve a higher degree of complexity with their applications.

Main features:

  • Cross-browser compatible
  • JUnit integration
  • Internationalization
  • Easily create efficient internationalized applications and libraries
  • Interoperability and fine-grained control
  • Google Gears support
  • Reusable UI components
  • Simple RPC support
  • Browser history management
  • Lots of debugging tools
