Re: GWT for Web Development (again)

It might be possible for GWT to make it easier to "burn out" pages I guess, not sure of the precise method or convenience factor it would add.
Youd still need to somehow get the sever to then send out those static html pages.

Probably need something like the javascript burns a copy of the html, which is sent to a php script, which in turn makes a hard copy cache of the dynamic content?

Honestly, I am not sure why Google isn't crawling javascript by now. I'm sure with all their fancy AI tech they have they could adapt their algorithms to take it - including making themselves look like a regular user so as not to be fed false content.

Hi, I suppose the question has been discussed many times but I will like to reopen the issue.

Since I discovered GWT, aprox. 5 years ago, I do not want any other framework. It gives me the right tool to get a good productivity, forget about passing HTTP params back and forward, enjoy lots of libraries, and last times, with bootstrap I have added the best of design to my GWT projects. So, I feel having collected a great toolkit for development.

There is only a problem: search engines. Search engines, in my experience do not like GWT. Even when you have the _escaped_fragment_ thing, I guess google does not treat you the same that with pure HTML code. I know that GWT is not intended for web but is really a shame not enjoying the full potential of the framework on web environments. I have noticed that most of companies that start in GWT migrates to common Java/HTML frameworks as soon as they are successful or they get funding, just because the SEO penalty.

So, is there anything, at all, that could be done, in future releases, to claim GWT being also a framework for Web environments? I mean, not allowing google even know that your webapp was created with GWT. I know about the dynamic content generation but I guess something could be done about it. I think adoption would multiply by thousands.
