Sample text

This so-called module descriptor comes in the form of an XML file. The configuration defined in the descriptor contains the following entries: • Inherited modules—these entries are comparable to import statements in normal Java classes, but for GWT applications. • Entry point class—this entry details which classes serve as the entry points, like the classes containing the main(String[]) method in normal Java classes. Only, GWT entry point classes have to implement the EntryPoint interface provided by GWT.

At the time of writing, applications developed with GWT will work similarly on the most recent versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Opera. 29 30 CHAPTER 2 ■ INTRODUCING GOOGLE WEB TOOLKIT (GWT) However, you must be aware that the application you develop will eventually be turned into an HTML interface that is rendered by a browser. Unfortunately, these HTML interfaces tend not to work exactly the same on different browsers. In particular, layout and styling might turn out quite different.

These resources are packaged as part of your application. • Client-side code—this is the Java code that the GWT compiler translates into JavaScript, which will eventually run inside the browser. Note that this code needs to adhere to the restrictions outlined earlier in this chapter as to what classes can and can’t be used. • Server-side code (optional)—this is the server part of your GWT application, the remote back end to your client-side application. Obviously, if your application doesn’t require back-end services (in Java), then you don’t need this part.
