With the release of RAP (Rich AJAX Platform) from Eclipse and GWT (Google Widget Toolkit) from Google, it’s easier than ever before to build AJAX applications using the strong typed Java language instead of the less-sophisticated JavaScript. Which technology is more suited to your needs? Dan Rubel and Mark Russell will review the same application implemented once using GWT and a second time using RAP to compare and contrast the two technologies, so that architects and developers can make informed decisions about which Java-based AJAX technology best suits their situation. Benefits, pitfalls, scalability and best practices of each will be covered. Come, compare and learn!
