GWT = easy AJAX

AJAX has opened up the world of rich and dynamic interfaces for web applications, but it comes with a price: the increasing complexity of developing JavaScript applications that run reliably and consistently across today's web browsers. The Google Web Toolkit (GWT) offers an original and highly effective solution to this problem by providing the tools to develop and debug AJAX applications in the Java language. In this session we will discuss how Google was driven to this solution, how it fits into Google's global portfolio and especially Google App Engine; we will expose the architecture of GWT, and examine the key features that make it an efficient solution for today's web applications.
