Google opens Google Web Toolkit

By December 13, 2006

For the uninitiated:

GWT uses object-oriented widgets and desktop application development idioms to facilitate rapid development of Web applications with proper multi-browser support. GWT uses a generative approach to AJAX, converting Java code into Javascript and HTML with a specialized compiler.

It was created to speed development of Google’s AJAX based tools like Gmail and Google Maps, but has not been widely adopted in part due to its license. By going to an open source license (Apache License in this case) its possible that the Toolkit will see wider use. Given the success that Google has had with their rich web applications, its certainly conceivable we’ll be seeing more of this tool soon.
