Migration to GitHub

Since Google is going to close the Google Project Hosting, and the blog posts here are still quite popular, I decide to move the GWT code examples to GitHub. I will let you know once the migration ready.

The Future of Interactions Blog

First thanks to all my readers and more then 90000 visitors so far!

I started this blog as I work on project where we had to develop portlets based on GWT technology. I realize soon how powerful the framework was and how much you can do out of box or by simple writing few wrappers on the top of the existing functionality. I dedicate more then year to prepare examples showing how to do staff in GWT way without 3rd party frameworks and publish them on GWT2GO. I was really cool time!

As you possibly already realize, unfortunately I haven't been able to post new articles here for a while. The reason is that as member of Oracle A-Team I was not able to find enough time to spend on the GWT technology anymore. It was great time working with GWT and really enjoy it, but it's time for me to move to something else and extend my view by learning new frameworks and technologies.

Currently I work in my spare time on two new private projects.
The first project calls Votloo. It is simple system for event decisions, brainstorming and idea generator tool. You can find more information here: www.votloo.com

The second project has currently no name but basically it is simple JAVA based flat file web content management system. As you probably realize most similar systems are written in PHP and there is maybe not too far if I say, there is no equivalent popular system in Java. The system basically uses Spring+Thymeleaf. It is really very very easy to use and I am almost ready to publish it soon. Let me know if you have interest, just drop me comment bellow.

Cheers,
Lyudmil

The Future of GWT–Report

I just read the report about the future of GWT, really good job done by the GWT Steering Committee. You can get your free copy from the report here:

https://vaadin.com/gwt/report-2012

I was actually surprised that there are not a lot of organizations using GWT for building portlets. I personally know several and I was involved to develop GWT Portlets few times as well. I suppose that most of this organizations did not post to the survey or they just select business applications instead of portlets, which I can understand. The portlets are mostly applications for the business side in the organizations. Your usually never sell internally in the organization portlets but business application and the business does not really care what it calls, they want to have the functionality they require and pay.

Later the Committee will post the wish list here:

https://vaadin.com/gwt/report-2012

but I think I can guess that the compiler optimization will be on the first place.

cheers,
