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."

What didn't you understand in my comment that jQuery with Node.js is better than GWT?


I ignored it because Node.js while very cool it isn't commonly used.

Other than JavaScript JSON is non native to all programming languages.


Pretty much every language commonly used for web development has a mature serializer, deserializer.

And "isn't exceptionally hard" is not a counterpoint to "no need to".


Instead you have to write a ton of classes in Java which you do anyway in C#, PHP, Ruby or whatever.

Most of the front end code is exactly what you would write in JS anyway ... so I forgive me if I don't really see the benefit of GWT.
