Building RIAs Using Google Web Toolkit (GWT)

VeriSign's Karthik Shyamsunder to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct. 20-22, in San Jose, CA

Rich Internet Applications using AJAX technology has truly improved the end user experience. But, as a developer if you are new to it, be warned: AJAX projects can quickly degenerate into a nightmare of spaghetti script. Large JavaScript technology code bases are often hard to write, read, test, and debug--not to mention the complexity of efficiently supporting multiple browsers.

If you are a Java developer, you have another choice - the Google Web Toolkit (GWT). GWT is a lightweight, reusable Java technology framework has taken a unique approach to developing rich internet applications to wrangle AJAX coding issues. The Google Web Toolkit addresses code reuse, performance, multibrowser support, debugging, and testing AJAX applications.


This session introduces the GWT framework that might provide some food for thought for Java technology practitioners who want to build rich internet applications but do not want to face the uphill battle of becoming JavaScript language experts too.
