Please add support to GWT [SPR-5297] #9970
nicolas de loof commented
Spring support for server-side RPC services is trivial, and is allready documented in GWT incubator wiki.
gwt-widgets project also has a more advanced support. It may be a good starting point for a gwt namespace and support package in spring (via incubator ?)
Spring support on client side also has an existing codebase as gwtoolbox project. This one is supported by SpringSource guy Iwein Fuld, so it may also become a candidate to incubator. This GWT extention can be used to define widgets and other UI components as spring beans (using XML or JavaConfig syntax) and the GWT compiler will translate it to JS code. As other deferred binding techniques, this relies on "compile-time" dependency injection in replacement to "runtime" one in Spring on Java.
Some missing features to makge gwtoolbox fully spring compiant (IMHO) :
