Re: GWT vs SmartGWT

Folks in my company were just asking me this the other day. If you want an app that looks like the GXT or SmartGWT showcase, and absolutely nothing more, then use them. But you'll have to bend to their paradigms and extend their frameworks if you want more than they do. Further, these frameworks are heavy weight, so doing just what you need in GWT will be much faster performance wise. This is why we stick with pure GWT on my team and why another dev team in our company wanted to jump off a cliff after building a 400 screen app in GXT.
