Google Web Toolkit 1.6 (Release Candidate) – developer’s guide and download page

Developer’s Guide

  • Please consider this a draft until GWT 1.6 is officially released

  • Google Web Toolkit (GWT) makes it easier to write high-performance AJAX applications. You write your front end in the Java programming language and GWT compiles your source into highly optimized JavaScript.

Upgrading to GWT 1.6

There are four tasks involved when upgrading a GWT 1.5 project to a GWT 1.6 project:

  • Download the new JAR files and update your launch configurations.

  • GWTShell has been replaced by HostedMode, so you will need to update your Eclipse project settings accordingly.

  • GWT now uses a war directory for most public resource and server configuration files. The war directory is a standard directory recognized by many web servers, including GWT hosted mode.

  • Event listeners have been replaced by event handlers.
