Hi all,

I am new to GWT but pretty familiar with Struts 2. Currently I my project is in Struts 2, but I need to convert UI part to GWT. So I wanted to know about some tutorial for integrating Struts 2 with GWT. I want to know the possible implications of using this approach for highend applications like how the performance would be affected, development efforts, level of knowledge of GWT. And it would be great if someone could suggest some good book to quickly get started with GWT. Is there any book like Head First GWT??

Thanks in advance.

I don't think so. There really isn't much to it. You write your GUI and middleware in Java and GWT turns it into AJAX Javascript. I went through the tutorial and had what I thought was a good grasp of the API in an afternoon (I'm no genius, it too me DAYS to figure out Struts 2!).
There is a Struts 2 GWT Plugin that you'll probably want to look at if you want to pursue that stack.

An Amazon search turns up at least 6-9 books, although I tend to agree with Joe--the online docs are plenty to get started.

The Struts user mailing list occasionally has GWT/S2 discussions and I know at least a few people on it have done this; if you have specific questions that would be another place to start.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
