I was wondering if it would be a good idea to have dedicated GWT forum here on coderanch! Where else can we put questions related GWT?

We have a forum dedicated to HTML/JS. Why don't you start posting there?
If there is a sizable amount of traffic, it can seed a new forum.

Actually, the "Application Frameworks" forum would be the best place for GWT question. We don't use the HTML forum for questions about all the HTML-generating frameworks.

As to having its own forum, we generally create one if there are a lot of posts about something. So far, we haven't really seen that for GWT.

I would still vote for a separate forum for GWT.

While GWT does generate HTML and is based on javascript, a lot of GWT code is actually java code,
I predict most questions would be about custom made widgets behaving differently in different browsers.

Personally, I don't think we need GWT forum, GWT Google group is extremely active and helpful.
MHO.

Dear Salivn,
GWT doesn't generate HTML, it generates JavaScript.
GWT is a Java to JavaScript -well if I can call it- generator.

sorry on my extremely silly mistake !!
yes I meant to say GWT generates Javascript.

however, I look at it with the respect of a translator rather than a generator,
the last time i did a "DETAILED" build instead of a "PRETTY" one, I noticed classes analogous to mine,

please, please don't call me salivn

GWT Google group is extremely active and helpful: yes,
but so are the Java groups and yet we have big moose saloon.

I like the idea of a GWT forum here on the ranch.

If a staffer would carry the torch, I'll approve it.

Are there GWT books out?

So, all you need now is a staffer willing to take the time to get the forum up off the ground:

1) create forum

2) move a bunch of existing threads to the forum

3) Arrange book promotions with Jeanne and Henry

4) (optional) maybe create some banners to promote the new forum

5) (optional) maybe arrange some sponsorship text to go out on upcoming mailings

6) (optional) get some support from the google folks?

7) (optional) announce the forum on the google group? (only if that seems like it would be cool with that group)

8) (optional) fish for other creative ways to breathe life into a new forum

Of course, if several ranch hands such as yourself were offering bits of this and other ways to be helpful, it might be more likely that a staffer would volunteer, and more likely that getting the forum going would succeed!

There is now a GWT forum. This has been asked for before. Looks like now the time is right!

Salvin,
I just created it. You still need to keep it active so it stays and thrives.
