Java "After an initial round of testing we've declared build 147 to be the first Release Candidate of JDK 7. There are only thirteen changes in this build. Over half of them are administrivial updates that don't affect the actual code; the remainder are true showstoppers, including several hard VM crashes and a JIT correctness bug identified by an Eclipse unit test. If no new showstopper issues are reported, and if JSR 336 and the component JSRs pass their Final Approval Ballots in the JCP, then this will be the GA build for release later this month per the schedule posted back in January."

Otherwise, jQuery is rather easy way of developing the JS based UI. Interacting with the server side is still easier with GWT.


is it really that hard to do $.ajax ?? ... how is GWT any easier in this regard?

Neither JSON nor XML are native structure formats for most programming languages. GWT hides that exceptionally well.

Except they both work well with ... JavaScript.

JSON is Javascript ... and dealing with XML isn't exceptionally hard.
