We've been prototyping with RequestFactory for months and haven't ever

AFAIK, Roo is only a dev tool to generate and maintain boilerplate
code. There's nothing related to Roo in the generated code (have a
look at the Expenses sample, the domain objects and all Scaffold*
classes are those generated by Roo).
RequestFactory goes against DRY as you have interfaces extending
EntityProxy on the client-side, and "whatever" on the server-side; but
it's lighter weight than e.g. GWT-RPC at runtime: lighter payload
going on the wire (in most cases, and particularly on "upload"), and
much much lighter and faster on the client-side as parsing the payload
is just a matter of JSON.parse()

Could you explain to me how DI slows things down? It's merely about
moving the place where you "new" objects, I don't see where there'd be
overhead re. start-up time.
Noteworthy: Roo generates GWT apps that use GIN for DI on the client
side, but there's no DI at all on the server-side. And DI is
absolutely not a requirement; only a best practice (that I'd encourage
*anyone* to follow)
