Building Blueprint with GWT



The real world experience building Lombardi Blueprint is used as a case study to introduce the use of GWT, why it was successful and why it has become the platform of choice for other Lombardi products. One goal of the presentation is to argue for the use of GWT as the foundation for RIA development.


Alex Moffat is the Engineering Manager for Lombardi Software's Blueprint product and a recognized speaker on the topic of GWT with Java. His experience includes working with both customers and developers of enterprise software and has been programming in Java since beta 1.0.

  • Widget Libraries and Wysiwyg

    by Alex Zakharov,

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    I'm curious about people's thoughts/experiences with 3-rd party widget libraries and/or Wysiwyg tools (i.e. GWT Designer from Instantiations). After two days of playing with it GWT Designer seems quite nice - it supports GWT 1.5 (1.6 support is in progress) and GWT-EXT. GWT-EXT seems to add some nice widgets to core GWT, albeit GWT-EXT widgets are not native. In contrast EXT-GWT does have native widgets but GWT Designer doesn't support it. Yet.

    Any opinions would be much appreciated.
