After waiting with bated breath for what seemed like forever, the GWT Developer Plugin for Chrome on Linux has finally arrived!

Now I can get rid of the custom prebuilts I keep pulling from svn trunk. ; )

  1. I see you do GWT. So I did a quick search for Vaadin on your blog, with no result.

    You have heard of the Vaadin (GWT based) framework ?

    • Yup, I’ve heard of it. I did my due diligence when considering which AJAX library to use, and my official recommendation was (and still is, for anyone out there looking to go RIA) to stick to as much core GWT as possible, and augment that as necessary using widgets from the GWT incubator or Mosaic project. And I can not stress this enough…stay away from widget libraries that are comprised mostly of JNSI-wrapped JavaScript methods – they significantly lessen the value of the GWT cross-compiler, and make it more difficult to achieve many of the benefits that you get out-of-box by sticking to the GWT way of doing things.
