Hi i am quite new to GWT and have now come to a point where id like to include server calls.
I already got familiar with RPC calls and am now able to receive data from the server.

Now i want to include hibernate in my project and am now looking for a good framework.
I am looking for something like JSF or Spring that will allow me an easy implementation of the Domain-Dao-Server structure.

Can anyone recommend a good framework for hibernate in GWT?

thanks in advance

I have used Spring and GWT.
Basically I liked the notion to isolating front end and back end, so I was using GWT as front end and Spring with RESTful services as back end.
This way you can have loose coupled GUI.

And as far as spring MVC is concerned, one may achieve it with little changes(complex though).

And if you like to use plain spring and hibernate with GWT, you may use it on server side. I don't see any problem on that side. After all they are java framework with configuration.

P.S : you can check out smartgwt api for such purpose. It may provide support for ORM.

okay thanks for the replies. I just ended up using spring for the backend. Works pretty fine
