Hi Federico,

First let me say that I found your book very instructive and the practical MVP examples helped me with some of GWT intricacies (RPC Patterns in particular).

My question is not technical in nature but I would like to get your opinion on the future of GWT, given the recent fallout of Google Wave and the additional Oracle/Google tensions.

Thanks.

Hi!

AFAIK, there's a GWT 2.1 version "in the works" --you can get "Milestone" versions if you want to experiment-- and I think there will be a GWT 3 version too (sorry, I don't remember where I read about it). Google Wave died because of other factors -- but it shows a good sized application in GWT. Finally, being an OSS project, I guess it can still go on living, even if Google stopped work on it, but I hope it doesn't get to that.

Hope this helps!

Google Wave isn't the only Google application utilizing the GWT framework. In one of the past Google I/O conferences (I can't recall the specific one), the speaker gave examples of how GWT is used for the Google ad words management tool. This shows GWT is embedded into a core business application so will likely continue to see some level of support.

Google Wave died because it was a solution for a problem obviously no one has.
