Re: WebAssembly a good fit for the future of GWT?

In the scale of thing the Java -> WebAssembly is probably relatively easy bit? Even after very tough problems like GC and host/JavaScript binding there would be no Widget set etc? I'm also a massive fan of Editor/RequestFactory etc that have magic in the complication process that I don't think anyone is offering to support.

I think Thomas is right. GWT 3.0 is going in the direction of playing nicely with all the other JavaScript toys nicely.

However, I'm in the other main camp that wants to program in Java using a component based widget set where the browser is just another deployment target. I could be wrong about the "other main camp", could just be me ;)

TeaVM is capable of Java to WebASM translation.

However you must understand that WebASM can not access to

 * DOM
 * Network
 * WebGL
 * WebAudio
 * GC
 * Any JavaScript Object

It can only  do [+, -, *, /, read, write] of [int8, int16, int32, int64, float32, float64] and make calls to JavaScript methods with simple nuberic signature like Math.sqrt. Also it can make calls.
