Hello Authors,

I am new to this. So my question is "Is it the book for beginners like me"? Can your book be used to build the foundation?

Regards
Padma

Hi Padma,

We wrote the book with aspects for both beginners and for people already using GWT (and therefore also for beginners as they move further into it).

There's a slightly longer answer here:

Good luck with GWT!

Hello Authors,
I want to know that can we use GWT with java web applications or it is totally different technology?

Is this book is for beginners? How can we use GWT to improve web application?

hello Sanjeev,

GWT is a frame work.

GWT simplifies Ajax Implementation, Just like how struts Framework simplifies servlets,jsp implementation.

GWT focuses on the client-side, and all code on the client-side is compiled to JS. The only interaction with server-side resources would be through RPC calls. With GWT you get a few tools to help with that...

* RequestBuilder - REST style call, just like you would with Prototype, or other AJAX framework.

* XML-RPC - Specific to GWT this allows you to pass Java objects between the client and a server-side servlet. It automatically handles the object serialization.

* JSON - A JavaScript Object Notation parser and objects are included. This can be used with RequestBuilder to send the JSON request/response to any server type that uses JSON (Perl, RUby, PHP, etc.)

* XML Parser - The XML parser that comes with GWT can be used to parse incoming requests fetched with RequestBuilder. There is a third-party library that used this to create a XML-RPC library.

Hope that helps.

Sanjeev Debnath,

In the future DO NOT Hijack other people's threads with new questions. If you have a new question that relates to a seperate subject matter, please post it in a new thread. This keeps the conversations on topic and not moving in different directions.

Thank You,
Eric
