Amazon EC2 cloud computing got much cheaper today...

Today Amazon introduced "reserved instance" pricing for users who tend to run long lived instances.

Simpler and Speedier GWT with Server Side RPC Serialization

In this post I will describe how we are using server side GWT RPC serialization at Ikayzo to both improve performance and simplify client code logic.

First, let's have a quick recap of the normal startup sequence of a GWT application. As depicted below, it begins with the client requesting an HTML page containing a GWT script reference and static application text. All that is required in this initial page is a one line script that includes the GWT application's "nocache" file.… Continue
