Google Web Toolkit, or GWT, works on a simple, but powerful idea. You write a web application in Java and GWT cross-compiles it into JavaScript. This free, open source collection of tools is both supported and used by Google. The latest version, GWT 2.4, includes a library of high-quality interface components, an easy-to-use designer, and productivity tools that make using GWT a snap. And yes, the JavaScript it produces is really, really good.

GWT in Action, Second Edition is a completely revised edition of the best-selling GWT book. It covers all the new features introduced in GWT 2, as well as the best development practices that have emerged in the GWT community. It begins with a rapid-fire introduction to GWT and Ajax to get you up to speed with GWT concepts and tools. Then, you'll explore key concepts like managing events, interacting with the server, creating UI components, building your user interface declaratively using UiBinder and more.

As you move through the engaging examples, you'll pick up the skills you need to stay ahead of the pack. You'll absorb the latest thinking in application design and industry-grade best practices, such as implementing MVP, using Dependency Injection, and code optimization.

What's Inside

  • Creating and understanding GWT applications
  • Communicating with GWT-RPC, HTTPRequest, RequestBuilder, JSONRequestBuilder, FormPanel
  • Using the powerful new UiBinder to declaratively build interfaces
  • Implementing efficient views of large data sets and using GWT Editors
  • Optimizing your application with client bundles, deferred binding, and code splitting
  • Reducing the amount of code you need to write using Generators and Dependency Injection

Google designed GWT to make it easier to build and maintain large-scale web apps. This book will show you how. This book is written for Java developers, but no prior experience with GWT is required.
