I’ve been using GWT since the start. Comming from a AWT/SWING background it was really groundbraking easy to pick up. There was a lot of entousiasme from developers since most frameworks were really bad in those days.
But a lot has happened since then. I’ve been waiting for the next GWT for years now. I’m currently being forced to move to Angular just because we can’t find any skilled GWT developers for our next project.
I believe in the advantages of GWT and I still hope that GWT 3.0 becomes a reality... but time is running out very quickly. I know I have lost the battle in my company, I’m currently writing a document that describes how we will be salvaging some custom GWT components and reuse it in Angular applications.
So it is time that the GWT maintainers start realizing that they need to start selling their product much better and communicate clearly. Because we are waiting already 2 years for some clear indication on where this product is going. Nobody knows, and that is a hard sell if you need to develop software now. But once our product is under development we can’t switch back to GWT.
