Hi there,

I'm looking for a good strategy to migrate a PHP website into GWT front-end based site.

i'm intending to use UIBinder to build the UI for new GWT Pages. The PHP pages have a set of resources (images, js files and css files).

what is a good strategy to follow to convert HTML/CSS UI into UIBinder GWT ?

suppose you were asked to migrate this page into GWT. what would your strategy be? would you convert each div into a GWT Panel? ,what page elements would you be interested into making a GWT widget and what parts would you leave as plain html?

-thanks

Why?

You can have GWT talk to a PHP handler via POST/GET but actually intermixing the two? I'm sure it is possible, but the code would be difficult to work with. On top of that, UiBinder is still in its infancy in the GWT API, so I wouldn't rely on it for much at the moment.
