1.Are there any\ do you know of any Freeware\FOSS GWT Designers which enable developers to create U/I's using a drag-drop from a VB like IDE ?
I know about Instantiations GWT Designer but that is a commercial software and I know Googlipse which has Exlipse Integration for projects but not a visual U/I designer.
2. How easy is it to integrate external js libraries like Scriptaculous\Prototype\In-house,home-grown js file within a GWT app. Can it create any conflicts ? The reason I ask is that over time,as we get more experienced with JS, its easier to figure out how to do something in JS rather than think in Java. I hope its easy to integrate GWT generated JS and developer generated JS.
3. If existing enterprise apps using GWT switch to using .NET, is there a possible upgrade path to switch an app using GWT components\widgets over to .NET ?
1. I am not aware of any freeware designers for GWT. IntelliJ the maker of Idea also has an IDE for building GWT guis.
3. I am not aware of any way to convert GWT components over to .Net components.
