There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it. You agreed to this when you signed up to the JavaRanch.
Unfortunately, your screen name does not seem to conform with this policy. Please take a moment to change it.
If you want a chance to win a copy of this book, your name needs to be valid.
They can't really be compared directly. Prototype is a kinda light-weight API to weed out browser differences and allow you to use pseudo objects. YUI, which I haven't used much, is known a collection of cool widgets.
GWT on the other hand is a Java based toolkit that includes RPC, i18n, image tools, code generation, and of course widgets.
