Google Web Toolkit (GWT) now available in PDF

We’re pleased to announce our latest title, “Google Web Toolkit: Taking the Pain out of Ajax”, is now available

The new Google Web Toolkit unifies client and server code into a single application written in one language: Java. GWT lets you create a web application in much the same way as you would create a Swing application, creating visual components, setting up event handlers, debugging, and so forth, all within a familiar IDE.

This Friday by Ed Burnette provides you with a thorough introduction to the Google Web Toolkit. From installation, through your first application, to UI components and Remote Procedure calls, you’ll learn the ins and outs of the framework. Some knowledge of Java programming and HTML is assumed, but you don’t have to be an expert in web programming.

You’ll learn all about:

  • Installing GWT
  • Creating scaffolding
  • Hosted vs. Web Mode development
  • Deployment
  • User Interface widgets
  • Making Remote Procedure Calls
  • Working with History and Bookmarks
  • Using the JavaScript Native Interface

“Google Web Toolkit: Taking the Pain out of Ajax” is available immediately as part of our PDF-only “Friday” series. For more information please visit
