Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is anopen sourceset of toolsthat allowsweb developersto create and maintain complex JavaScriptfront-endapplicationsin Java. Other than a few native libraries,everything is Java source that can be built on anysupported platform with the included GWTAnt build files. It is licensed under the Apache Licenseversion 2.0.GWT emphasizesreusable, efficient solutions torecurringAjaxchallenges, namelyasynchronous  remote procedure calls, history management,bookmarking,internationalizationand cross- browserportability.
does not revolve only arounduser interface programming; it is a general set of tools for building any sort of high-performanceclient-side JavaScript functionality. In livepresentations, the developers of GWT emphasizethat "GWT is not its libraries" and that it onlyincludes a library but is not fundamentally yetanother AJAX library. This open-ended philosophysometimes surprises developers new to GWT whoexpect it to provide an end-to-end "on r

Development with GWT
Using GWT, developers can rapidly develop anddebugAJAXapplications in the Java language usingthe Java development tools of their choice. Whenthe application is deployed, the GWT cross-compiler translates the Java application tostandalone JavaScriptfiles that are optionallyobfuscatedand deeply optimized.GWT does not revolve only around user interfaceprogramming; it is a general set of tools forbuilding any sort of high-performance client-side JavaScript functionality.
