Thanks Steve for ur response. i tought about this but this wont help me with my project because most of the fields present in the form are dynamic ones so sending a XHR request for field would be very expensive. could u please suggest any another way around.

The compiled HTML and JavaScript runs in the browser, so you need to make a GWT-RPC or XMLHTTPRequest call to the server for the list contents.

Good luck!
