Hi everybody,

I have some question:

#1 - Which projects you prefer to use GWT instead of other frameworks (like JSF)? Do you think the cost to switch a team that already has a good skill in other framework is high (time, money, etc)? Any experiences?

#2 - Is there any list of open source projects that use GWT, so I can take a look at how they use the framework?

#3 - Do you know if Google is planning to publish their projects that use GWT (like Orkut) in Google Code as an open source project?

#4 - Which frameworks do you usually use with GWT? (Like Spring, Hibernate, etc)


Thank you in advance.

Luan

Hi! Several answers:

1. I use GWT for business-oriented applications. I have worked with people who had experience with other frameworks (Spring, Faces, etc.) and we could re-use that experience for the server side. The main change is that the front end isn't JSP (or the like) based any more, but Java code. Programmers with Java+Swing experience are best -- and they should know at least SOMETHING about HTML, Ajax, etc!

2. There's no list I know of (though the GWT Gallery may help) but there are several, including some really not common ones, as Piano Etudes

3. Nope -- but (at least part of) Google Wave is going open.

4. We've used JPA/Hibernate. Spring integration seems to be on its way for GWT 2.1.

Hope this helps!
