Hello Ranchers,

In my new project client has requested to use GWT/SmartGWT for developing presentation tier. (Note: Screens are not much complex)
I am aware about the MVP Pattern but I need to decide which flavor of the MVP pattern I should use which meets following criteria.

1. I should be able to integrate/use SmartGWT components seamlessly with the MVP framework.
2. It would be great if framework provides me flexibility to support UI to be displayed on Mobile or iPad sort of devices.

Any guidance on this would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!!
Bhavesh

What do you mean by flavor?

Hi Maneesh,

Following are the mvp frameworks I found from here

mvp4g
gwt-platform
gwt-presenter
gwt-dispatch etc

My question here is if I choose mvp4g, will it be compatible with SmartGWT components?

Isomorphic (creators of SmartGWT) strongly advise against using Google MVP with SmartGWT - it's not designed for SmartGWT, but actually for GWT's built-in widgets, which do not support databinding out of the box, whereas SmartGWT's widgets have such capabilities built in. More detail here:
