What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

GWT’s Bruce Johnson writes about GWT’s future, in light of the recent introduction of Dart.

Quote:

We view Dart as an ambitious evolution of GWT’s mission to make web apps better for end users ... we anticipate working closely with the GWT developer community to explore Dart.
...
Key projects within Google rely on GWT every day, and we plan to continue improving (and open-sourcing) GWT based on their real-world needs.
I read three statements:
  1. Dart is better than GWT (or will be, eventually)
  2. Dart will be explored as a replacement for GWT
  3. GWT will continue to be improved
Dart seems like the logical successor to GWT: An improved version of Java that runs on its own virtual machine, but can also be compiled to JavaScript. However, with much legacy GWT code around, Google cannot simply abandon GWT. What I would like to see is a clear message: Is Dart a GWT replacement or not?
