I've been vaguely aware of GWT and what it does for a few years, but learning Java is still on my todo list so I haven't yet explored GWT in too much depth.--
While recently poking around in my browser devtools as I tried to figure out how a particular webapp worked I noticed some obfuscated cache files, and after a bit of digging and research I learned this was because the code was GWT-generated.
Even if the obfuscation engine doesn't compress as a side effect, the result certainly seems much harder to read and follow to me than the output of the various other JS minifiers out there, and as such, the obfuscation component is very appealing to me on its own.

PS. As an aside, I'm very curious why so many of the functions I see are empty. Is there a reason for this? Why can't eg 527 empty functions (with no arguments) be turned into 1? Are they being used as objects?
