Google Web Toolkit allows developers to create rich, Ajax-enabled, web applications using languages and tools that have previously been reserved for server-side and desktop programming. Applications are written in Java and then compiled to optimized, browser specific Javascript by the GWT compiler.

While the ability to maintain a single source base for multiple platforms is beneficial, the Google Plugin for Eclipse makes the development cycle even more streamlined. Using GWT and the Google Plugin for Eclipse, developers can now harness the capabilities of Eclipse when creating web apps -- code generation, refactoring, validation, debugging, and deployment.

This presentation will start with an overview of GWT and demonstrate how quickly you create an Ajax-enabled web app, debug it in an actual browser, set breakpoints in Java code, and makes changes on the fly that are in turn reflected in the browser.

This overview will be followed with a deeper dive into the GWT feature set, including RPC, Code Splitting, UiBinder, as well as deploying your application to the cloud. We'll also make sure to leave enough time for a Q&A session at the end.

You don't have to be entrenched in the Web 2.0 world to gain insight from this session. GWT makes it easy for businesses that are just starting to move their applications into the cloud, while maintaining an advanced feature set for those that have been there for years.
