Hi! I think GWT is really very good! But Will Dart gradually replace GWT? AT google blog I read that google moved developers from GWT team to dart team and they stoped using GWT for their internal project.
But then I think what about the future of GXT 3 from Sencha, which is a wrapper from GWt, who was just released...
I know that this question is not just about your book, but I'm very very interested to know your opinion about this, I would hope don't disturb the forum...
I wish I had an answer for you. I already feel that MVP is a bit over the top, and I was really interested in Vaadin, but then the add-on broke once 1.2 came out, so I haven't pursued it yet.
I'd rather let our experts tell you. This is all open from our blogs, but I like their viewpoints, as they've been doing it for quite a while and I'm not an expert in any way.
Suffice it to say that many of the backends for these applications are in a rapid app language like Rails in a greenfield project, but you'd be surprised to realize that iOS/Android native apps are not quick to write.
Mobile is just different, you don't really think of it as another front-end. You have to deal with disconnected users, with small handsets - read "Tapworthy" by Clark for some info there.
Now I realize I hijacked your thread. I saw Sencha and jQuery Mobile and wanted to share those resources.
Search the Spring Roo forum for a query from the team about mobile frameworks and you'll see some of the responses - Android came up, jQuery Mobile, etc.

I think your question is aimed at Ken and Srini regarding the Spring Roo in action promo. You have posted it in the GWT forum. I will move it over to the Spring forum for you.
Now that I've re-read the post, I am thinking that maybe she did want to ask this of the GWT forum too.
