The open source, lightweight Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a framework that allows Java developers to build Rich Internet Applications (RIA), more recently called Ajax applications, in Java. Typically, writing these applications requires a lot of JavaScript development. However, Java and JavaScript are very distinctively different languages (although the name suggests otherwise), therefore requiring a different development process.

In Beginning Google Web Toolkit: From Novice to Professional, you’ll learn to build rich, user–friendly web applications using a popular Java–based Ajax web framework, the Google Web Toolkit. The authors will guide you through the complete development of a GWT front end application with a no–nonsense, down–to–earth approach.

You’ll start with the first steps of working with GWT and learn to understand the concepts and consequences of building this kind of application. During the course of the book, all the key aspects of GWT are tackled pragmatically, as you’re using them to build a real–world sample application. Unlike many other books, the inner workings of GWT and other unnecessary details are shelved, so you can focus on the stuff that really matters when developing GWT applications.

What you’ll learn

  • Get a solid foundation to develop RIAs.
  • Understand the basics of the GWT Framework and its components.
  • Fit GWT into your application’s life cycle and development process.
  • Develop rich web front–end GUIs using widgets, composite widgets, panels, and much more.
  • Integrate with RPC, and various other data formats.
  • Reinforce principles learned throughout the book by working through a real–world sample application created with GWT from scratch.

Who is this book for?

Beginning Google Web Toolkit: From Novice to Professional is written for Java developers of all levels who want to start building Rich Internet Applications. The book assumes no prior knowledge of developing Ajax applications and/or working with JavaScript.

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) 是一個開源且輕量級的框架,允許Java開發人員使用Java來建立豐富的網絡應用程式(RIA),最近也被稱為Ajax應用程式。通常,撰寫這些應用程式需要大量的JavaScript開發。然而,Java和JavaScript是非常不同的語言(儘管名稱暗示相反),因此需要不同的開發過程。

在《從新手到專業人士的Google Web Toolkit入門》一書中,您將學習使用流行的基於Java的Ajax網絡框架Google Web Toolkit來建立豐富且用戶友好的網絡應用程式。作者將以直截了當、踏實的方式指導您完成GWT前端應用程式的完整開發過程。


- 建立RIA的堅實基礎。
- 理解GWT框架及其組件的基礎知識。
- 將GWT融入應用程式的生命週期和開發過程中。
- 使用小部件、組合小部件、面板等來開發豐富的網絡前端GUI。
- 整合RPC和其他各種數據格式。
- 通過從頭開始使用GWT創建的真實世界示例應用程式,加強書中學到的原則。
