Recently I visited Jazoon, an international conference for Java developers at Zurich, Switzerland.
Having heard a lot of interesting talks, I want to sum up my impressions and try to figure out some of the latest trends in the world of Java as well as interesting facts for software architects.
This is part 2 of my series of blog posts and deals with
Google Web Toolkit
I visited two talks about the GWT.
As you probably know, Google Web Toolkit follows the idea that the presentation layer of a web application can be entirely written in plain Java.
Dmitry Buzdin, a software architect from a Latvian outsourcing company, depicted the experiences they have made with GWT in a real-world project.
In general, his conclusion was positive. Although GWT forces some re-thinking and a different aproach than using Struts or similar web technologies, it is easy to use and integrates well with other widely used frameworks such as Hibernate. He said they found no major bugs in the framework and therefore recommend it for production use.
