Google Web Toolkit Solutions (Digital Short Cut): Cool & Useful Stuff
The Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a cutting-edge UI framework for Java developers, which lets you create rich, interactive user interfaces using familiar idioms from Java’s Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT), Swing, and the Eclipse Foundation’s SWT. If you’ve used any of those frameworks in the past, you’re already halfway up the GWT learning curve.
This short cut assumes that you have already installed GWT and have experimented with its basic features. It also assumes that you’re comfortable with techniques like implementing event listeners as anonymous inner classes and know how to construct applications using panels and widgets. Some of the more advanced aspects of the GWT are explored in this short cut using two applications: an address book and a Yahoo! trip viewer.
A JAR file containing the source code for both applications can be downloaded by going to www.prenhallprofessional.com/title/0131584650.
