This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
But, this page also says SmartGWT is based on the SmartClient library, and SmartClient only allows the use of their product for internal testing:
"Deployment or external exposure of works which use the Software is not permitted under the terms of this Agreement. You must acquire a deployment license for the Software from Isomorphic Software in order to deploy such works."
Charles Kendrick, did you join JavaRanch just to help me out with my lack of knowledge of SmartGWT licenses? Man, that's awesome. We love seeing that kind of dedication here at the ranch!
Thanks so much for joining the site and helping to dispell my incorrect assumptions.

You'd probably appreciate the advanced Hibernate integration:
