Re: Tips on libraries

Hi everyone,
having to start a new GWT project, on average complex, which framework / technologies you recommend for the following points:

- MVP architecture (currently using GWTP)
- dependency injection (currently using GIN)
- communication with the server (currently using GWT RPC, provided by GWTP)
- UI (currently using GwtBootstrap3)

I ask this question because it seems to me that all the libraries I have mentioned do not foresee new developments; for the GIN and GWTP part this is not a problem, because these libraries are very stable; instead, the part of UI is the one that worries me the most, as there is no upgrade to version 4 of Bootstrap.

Can't give any recommendation wrt UI, as I never used any 3rd-party library and have only worked on maintaining legacy projects for the last years, or GWTP (always used plain old GWT Places and Activities), but GIN ⇒ Dagger 2 (and replace GIN Assisted Injection with either AutoFactory or AssistedInject), and I'd try to avoid GWT-RPC.
Try to avoid anything based on GWT generators these days, and this includes GWTP. People generally use a generator with GWT Places, but it can trivially be replaced with an annotation processor or hand-written code so it's future-proof (work is already done btw:
