Google Web Toolkit (GWT)

It has been quite a while since i posted anything.. Well actually i have not been doing anything much during these days, but i think i will be posting more often now. At my work, i was going through what GWT, and i found out that it is one of the coolest ideas that i have gone through so far. The basic idea being converting the java code to Javascript. There are 2 reasons why this is a good idea: 1) Java is most widely used programming language and so providing a compiler to convert the user written java code to Javascript to work as an AJAX application is very intuitive. 2) Javascript as such does not have a compiler to check for errors, typos etc, and so providing the ability to write the code in java and the ability to use its famous IDEs like Eclipse and Netbeans which helps us to use its efficient debugging capabilities.
