just a side node on the subject.
I'm not a professionnal of gwt, just heard and watch a few demo/examples
Looks more like a last chance solution or "Magic" like you said.
Does it worth the time spend ?
I mean you could much more easely make :
- Java applet
- Java Web Start
Without much change in the code (perhaps even none).
Any of thoses solutions also have the benefit of speed and compatibility
I know some will say that it might be bigger to download, but I'm not so
with the latest pack200 compresion the application size can be reduced
by 50 to 70% (any even more combine with other tools) and once
downloaded won't require any more download if you close/reopen the browser.
What are gwt benefits in this case ?
