How does formatting work in these comments!? [[---quote---]] It isn't the ideal technology choice to do prototyping [[---comment---]] Agreed. [[---quote---]] making even sample application working take time and effort [[---comment---]] Did you try utilizing one of the (gwt-)maven archetypes available? That should enable anyone to create a "GWT development best practices" application from scratch within a few minutes ( e.g. http://mojo.codehaus.org/gwt-maven-plugin/user-guide/archetype.html ).

Thank you for sharing your knowledgeable with us. <<>> In the reality the generated java script is not really cross browser compatible (as promised) <<>> Could you please elaborate or give a simple example? <<>> I'll check in our bug trucking tool, I'm sure that we fixed some bugs concerning the compatibility between IE and firefox. <<>> http://mojo.codehaus.org/gwt-maven-plugin/user-guide/archetype.html >> We are already using this archetype but it's only create a sample application. But I don't agree that the generated application contains the "best practices''.Just to create 2 screens, you need to create: 2 places, 2 activities, , DTO, View, ViewImpl class, UIBinder file, some events, some event handlers, place mappers, module inject...lot of plumbing.

GWT probably isn't future-proof. I'd stick to JSF2.
