The ebook is easily written yet is now extraordinarily old-fashioned. The booklet used to be written for GWT model 1.5, yet on the time of my buy GWT 1.7 used to be the newest free up. there have been extra modifications than I anticipated. in exactly the 1st 3rd of the ebook i discovered the following:

- applicationCreator.cmd is not any longer a GWT command. it's been changed via webAppCreator.cmd

- webAppCreator.cmd creates a unique listing constitution than the illustrated examples.

- The default program that GWT generates has changed.

- a brand new occasion version used to be brought in GWT 1.6. particularly, Listeners are changed with Handlers. you'll come upon this for the 1st time in bankruptcy three.

- whereas i used to be following the workouts utilizing GWT 1.7, Google published GWT 2.0 which extra obsoleted this version. The 2.0 liberate brought a declarative UI with UIBinder. after all that will not be during this booklet. additionally in 2.0 "Development Mode" changed the "Hosted Mode" that is nice yet will confuse the amateur utilizing this booklet as guidance.

The purely manner this booklet will be priceless is that if you obtain GWT 1.5 to keep on with in addition to the examples. i do not understand many programmers, beginner or another way, that may be content material to profit a expertise on an previous free up with deprecated tools and out of date tooling.

I just like the narratives of the ebook, i admire how it flows, and if the authors ever choose to put up a brand new variation with GWT 2.0 with an analogous kind and accuracy it can most likely earn 5 stars. regrettably the publication is simply too many releases old-fashioned (which is just too undesirable contemplating it was once simply Copyrighted in 2008!)

Example text

The configuration defined in the descriptor contains the following entries: • Inherited modules—these entries are comparable to import statements in normal Java classes, but for GWT applications. • Entry point class—this entry details which classes serve as the entry points, like the classes containing the main(String[]) method in normal Java classes. Only, GWT entry point classes have to implement the EntryPoint interface provided by GWT. Note that these entry point classes are optional and there can be more than one.

No clear separation between code and styling/layout—many frameworks provide good separation between the actual code written by developers and the HTML and styling that designers might deliver. GWT (as we’ll see in the remainder of this book) doesn’t provide this separation. Although the host page is plain HTML and can therefore be created by a designer, and GWT provides good support for styling using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) as we’ll see later, the rest of your GWT application is controlled by Java code.
