I have not actually heard much and worked on GWT.

Is this also a light weight component like Swing? to what extent it eases the UI development compared to the other components existing?

Thanks.

It's partly like Swing. It's lightweight and has a user interface framework.

It's specialized for creating Ajax applications. You write your client side application in Java and GWT compiles it to JavaScript so that it runs in all of the popular browsers (Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera), without being dependent on a JRE. Ajax applications have easy deployment.

It's usually compared to other JavaScript libraries, or server side view technologies like JSP. Compared to these it brings Swing-like development to web app interfaces. This means you can build your applications with Java tools (eclipse, refactoring, performance testing, unit testing etc).

It's easy deployment through Ajax with real software engineering through Java.

So, this is specially for AJAX is it?

Thank you for the detailed explanation Ryan.
