Tuesday, June 13th, 2006p>From Colorado Homefinder comes this real-world example of GWT to implement a mortgage calculator. CTO Anthony Francavilla says it was the perfect opportunity to try out GWT – a self-contained project and “something useful we could put into production right away”.
The team will be blogging about their experiences and the first installment is already in at Dan Moore’s blog.
- In general, I was less than impressed with the Google provided documentation, but very impressed with the GWT group.
- It was very easy to quickly develop using Eclipse and the hosted web browser.
- The HTML of the file you’re developing to lives under the src directory (all the way down in the public folder).
Are there any other examples of GWT out there? It was mentioned at the time of public release that there aren’t yet any Google projects using it, and it’s not clear if Google’s intention is to use it in-house.
