I am wondering if Griffon can be used in a manner analogous to GWT to develop client-side interaction for web applications. Grails is fine for structuring the server, but seems limited when it comes to dynamic web user interfaces.

This is a nice tutorial for building client-server applications with Griffon, but I was hoping for a way to "cross-compile" Griffon apps to run in a web browser. GWT does this for (a subset of) Java code, generating HTML/CSS/JavaScript. Hoping Griffon could do something similar.

GWT was built to work in browsers. I haven't found any desktop application built using GWT executed without browser. GWT creates Javascript code using Java builders.

Griffon creates a desktop application.

Hi Guys,

I've read in last GroovyMag an article about Griffon, and the author mentioned new feature in Griffon called 'Addons'

Does this book cover this new tasty bit and describe differences between Addons and Plugins ?

Another question that comes to my head, does Griffon support and use JavaFX ?

Many thanks

Kuba



Yes. Chapter 11 "Plugin Development" will cover both plugins and addons.
Griffon supports JavaFX to a certain extent due to:
- mixing Swing and JavaFX with 100% fidelity and with bidirectional communication is not yet possible.
- distributing the runtime jars is forbidden by the license. you're restricted to building applications in webstart and applet modes.

Cheers,
Andres

Hi guys! Glad to see you here.

I want to suggest that everyone take advantage of Andres and Danno being here. They're really impressive coders, with tons of knowledge about the subtleties of desktop application development. I can't imagine anyone will ask a question they can't at least address in some way.

I've had the opportunity to talk to Andres a few times, and I always learn something great when I do.

Happy to see Andres and Danno on the javaranch,
Griffon really rocks, building swing apps with griffon is like watching the "Boys, boys, boys" Sabrina's videoclip easy and funny ;-)
