Ajax and Google Web Toolkit (GWT) session at the Pune Meet On Java Technology

The expert session for the next IndicThreads meet on Java technology is about Ajax and the Google Web Toolkit (GWT). GWT and Dojo are widely believed to be the front runners in the Ajax framework race. In this session, Piyush Deshpande will introduce Ajax and then take us through the GWT.

Piyush is a BE in Info Tech from Bhilai Institute of
Technology, Durg
. He is currently working with Cognizant Technology Solutions. The following is a quick introduction to Ajax and GWT from Piyush, something to get you started before you attend the session.

Ajax represents the maturation of Internet standards into a viable application development platform. The combination of stable standards, better understanding and a unifying vision amount to a whole that is greater, by far, than the sum of its parts. Ajax makes it possible to achieve feature-filled user interfaces and a no-hassle, no-install deployment story.

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a Java software development framework that makes writing AJAX applications like Google Maps and Gmail easy. Writing a dynamic web application today is a tedious and error-prone process; about 90% of time is spent working around subtle incompatibilities between web browsers and platforms, and JavaScript’s lack of modularity makes sharing, testing, and reusing AJAX components difficult and fragile.

Using GWT avoids many of these headaches while offering users the same dynamic, standards-compliant experience. Front end of web application is written in the Java programming language, and the GWT compiler converts Java classes to browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML.

IndicThreads.com Pune meets on java technology are held on the last Saturday of each month.
