Make great looking GWT projects by using the Ext GWT Framework

Now that GWT version 1.5 is available for download, using the Ext GWT rich internet application framework for GWT is now possible. GXT is designed to support GWT 1.5 forward. From my experience using GXT in your projects does increase compile time for your GWT project, so be aware of that moving forward. I have started plaing around with GXT. So far the dialogue boxes are very handy, they are asyncronus unlike the dialogue boxes found in javascript so you have much more flexability in your applications. Also the progress bars are a very nice touch when you have GWT applications that require some extended processing time.

Google Web Toolkit Version 1.5 is now officially released

Great news for GWT users. GWT version 1.5.2 is now here! Time to upgrade all those older versions of GWT to the new 1.5 code. I have upgraded a couple of my project from 1.4 to 1.5.1 with little problem.

GWT 1.5 RC2 available for download

GWT 1.5 RC2 is now available for download. I have converted a couple of existing GWT 1.4 applications that I have over to 1.5 RC1 so the switch to RC2 should be very quick. Overall I am very happy with GWT 1.5 releases from a quality perspective.
