Thanks for the response Valentin,
What I am trying to achieve is a building a java
web application on tomcat
with a bunch of neat Ajax features. Nothing extremely advanced, I guess comparable to the complexity of an online hotel booking system.
The application will consist of a database, hibernate, java classes, and JSPs.
I am usually not very fond of that kind of complete solutions, I find that often the simplification of development limits you too much on what you can do. (JSF
is one of those complete frameworks that I dont like, I prefer Struts
I also got the idea that GWT forces a certain project structure on you, which would be kind of annoying. Am I wrong?
But hey, if GWT is the exception where they actually managed to provide a simplified development method (pure java GUI programming) for webapps without restraining your possibilites I'd be happy to go with it.
