Re: Use of HandlerManager in GWT example code conflicts with javadoc

The doc was written before EventBus (or even Places and Activities) was introduced. There's a reason these are "articles" with a date in the heading ;-)
So, follow the javadoc, use EventBus (but there's nothing fundamentally wrong using HandlerManager)

I've been implementing the MVP pattern for my application. The description of MVP on the site and the example code has been very helpful, especially as I lack experience with GUI patterns and many descriptions of MVP and MVC are somewhat abstract. However, I've noticed that the javadoc for HandlerManager says that developers are strongly discouraged from using it for an event dispatch mechanism, which is the opposite of what seems to be suggested in the code (Contacts and Contacts2). Can someone clarify this point for me? I'm wondering why the discrepancy, and if maybe we should update the example code somehow.
