Hello,

I have a query in mind that i am currently new to GWT. I had to learn it before but got busy in some other things
and lost track of GWT. My current question is can we try to directly start from ex GWT without learning GWT?
How can we integrate ex GWT with myeclipse?

Any pointers will be helpful.

Thanks,

"ex gwt" ?
Do you mean ext gwt or gwt ext , which are actually two different things?

Using third party libraries should not usually be fundamentally different than using the base GWT. You would need to tweak your setup by telling it to use the libraries. This would typically be done by modifying your project module xml file.
In case of ext gwt, it seems you need to modify the html file too.

Hi Maneesh,

Thank you for your quick turn-around.

If we are just evaluating EXT GWT, what kind of sample POC be made, which can at least exploit features like
Tables, Fading, Drag and Drop and all. I have thought of a sample employee application having basic add, update,
delete features with some charting capability. Can you advice some enhancement?

Best Regards,

The POC would mainly depend on what you are evaluating it for?
Eye candy? Usability? Ease of coding and ease of maintainability? Who is the target audience for the POC? Management? End users? Developers?

As you can see there are lots of variables involved.

Hi Maneesh,

The target audience is the management and they want to see something flashing looking nice to the eyes.
I honestly think they are not really bothered how hard it will be to code it, but they want to see something
fancy. Like dragp and drop, some flashing effects and all. Well, the POC can be anything, a simple login screen
with a registration form and may be if i want something related to the charting capability. That's their main
target. In short something fancy but not too complex in business at the POC level.

Best Regards,

Your employee application sounds good on this background.
Else just run the standard EXT GWT Demo

Hi Prithvi,

Since you mentioned MyEclipse, you may want to take a look at the new GWT generation capability in MyEclipse for Spring 8.6. It doesn't have EXT yet, but does generate a full CRUD GWT app based on either java beans, jpa entities, or db tables - and could give you a lot of good help when trying to create GWT.

Here's a couple helpful links:

HTH!
Dave
