Hello,

Is there any widget in GWT that will allow me to view MS Word docs or PDF files?

Thanks so much!

Regards,

Chris

GWT is essentially JS. I doubt if any such widget exists.
However you can always invoke Window.open to delegate the document opening task to the underlying OS.

I think, you may add frame to gwt application and send your file to app viewer,
like zoho or google docs and load this in your frame.

look this:

http://viewer.zoho.com/home.do

or

http://docs.google.com/viewer
