GWT and JSP, and never the twain shall meet?

I've heard, and it makes sense now in hindsight, that GWT and JSP don't integrate well.

Just wanted to ask here to verify that.

GWT may have some cool features I would want to use, but I'm not going to rewrite an entire web application without good reason.

Thanks,

I haven't worked with GWT yet, but it's on my list .

As far as I know, everything in GWT is in JAVA, and the framework generates the necessary JavaScript and HTML elements for you to display the page.

I am not 100% sure though.

Yes, the whole point of GWT is that you write your app completely in Java programatically, and then it's auto-generated.

I'd rather wash my face with Clorox.

I've been hesitant to use machine generated code for decades now. I figure that eventually that fear will become meaningless, but it has yet to happen.

Still, I can wait a year or two to see how GWT does. They are writing Google Wave in it (see wave.google.com) so that looks cool.

But will it integrate with my Dreamweaver templates, and is there an easy upgrade path for my JSPs today? I don't think so.

Thanks,

I am almost certain that you will have to start old projects from scratch to integrate with GWT.

As for myself, I like the idea of GWT. And the fact that Google came up with it makes the fact of machine generated source more bearable, since they always do cool stuff.
Still, I tend to fear Google more and more based on the way they operate ;)
