We are very excited about the 2.0 release of GWT (Google Web Toolkit)
, a core part of Ikayzo's technology stack. GWT 2.0 adds declarative UIs and proper CSS based layouts. These changes will make collaboration between designers and developers much easier. Finally we can build GWT apps the same way we build Flex and Silverlight apps.
- Declarative UI with UiBinder
GWT 2.0 introduces a powerfully productive new way to construct user interface code called UiBinder. UiBinder makes it easy to separate the visual aspects of the UI from its associated application logic. To construct your UI, simply mix HTML and widget elements declaratively in a UiBinder XML template — a .ui.xml file. You can then place application logic in an associated .java file.
- Pixel-perfect visuals with layout panels
Mahalo for the heads up Pat!
