Learn about one of Google Web Toolkit 2.0′s newest tools, Speed Tracer, in this video tutorial. This video provides an overview of Speed Tracer, a Chrome extension which enables developers to profile the internals of the browser, preventing bottlenecks by enabling diagnosis of hidden problems. Andrew Bowers will demonstrate how Speed Tracer is incorporated into the development cycle by walking through a Speed Tracer example.
Ajax, taken to its logical extreme, is essentially a 1990′s-style client/server architecture: one that has a vast, decentralized, and unpredictable network directly in its critical path. (The Internet, we’re talking about you.) Application developers have to grapple with network failures, latency, asynchonicity, multi-session synchronization, scalability, failover, cross-site scripting, and server securityâ€”and that’s in addition to actually being able to build an application in the first place. GWT gives you the plumbing to tackle these challenges head on, but finding the right architecture for your application can still be daunting. In …
One of the nicest things about working on an open source project is the atmosphere of community collaboration and brainstorming that it fosters. The GWT engineering team has been listening hard to the community about how GWT can be improved, and we’re excited to take you on a tour of the powerful new features that have resulted. GWT 2.0 contains huge improvements, including dynamic script loading, a new catalog of compiler optimizations, and a new approach to hosted mode debugging that promises to revolutionize your productivity. Without a doubt, it …
Stephan Janssenâ€™s presentation is organized around Parleys.com, a web site whose front end is implemented in Flash. He explains why they dumped DHTML and switched to Flex/AIR. He also talks about two technologies that could be used instead, GWT and JavaFX, presenting their pros/cons.
Google Web Toolkit is providing more and more information to developers in terms of how it is compiling your code, and how you can improve it. In this session, we will explain the tools available to you, how to interpret the results, and how you can guide this choose-your-own-adventure in the direction you want.
Don’t throw away your Web 1.0 websites just yet. In this session, you’ll learn how to take your existing websites, and layer AJAX on top of them using GQuery, a jQuery style library for GWT. Learn how GQuery benefits performance over existing solutions, increases productivity, and reduces defects by leveraging the GWT tool chain.
Google Web Toolkit provides the infrastructure you need to build a high performance web application and leaves the architecture open to fit your needs. Learn from others who have gone before. In this session we’ll discuss best practices that real web applications are using to achieve high performance event handling, UI creation, and more.
