With Microsoft Volta there has been a lot of comparison to GWT, especially as Eric M said that it will “blow GWT out of the water”. There are some features that I am very interested in wrt Volta, namely:
- Any CLR language (e.g. IronRuby :)
- The ability to run on the client or the server:
That being said, the Chronoscope (GWT project) author wrote about his experience playing with Volta, where he shares some of his frustrations (NOTE: Volta is obviously very much a preview release):
Microsoft’s test application certainly blows away my browser: http://labs.live.com/volta/samples/WordWorm.html.
I realize that this is a prototype, but come on. Microsoft should not be talking smack about GWT until they’ve got something to show that doesn’t have so many easy to criticize flaws.
I am biased. I work for Google. Ray writes a GWT application
