Google releases AJAX toolkit


Google has released their Google Web Toolkit (GWT). This toolkit can be used to develop AJAX applications in Java. Google describes the toolkit as follows:

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a Java development framework that lets you escape the matrix of technologies that make writing AJAX applications so difficult and error prone. With GWT, you can develop and debug AJAX applications in the Java language using the Java development tools of your choice. When you deploy your application to production, the GWT compiler to translates your Java application to browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML.

Look at Googles GWT page for more information

    Very nice idea by Google to develop and debug in Java and then transform it into JavaScript. However I miss quite some UI components/feauture, like e.g. a window that can be resized.
