Re: GWT strengths and suitability for enterprise apps - presentation

Hi Rogelio,

Its been a real long time and somehow I missed your reply. Thank you for taking the time to look and respond. Appreciated. 

Since then we have pretty much moved on to use Angular 2 and other frameworks except one app that still lives on GWT. 

Do you have any clues if there are further efforts planned or ongoing ?

Regarding your presentation:

Slide 5 - mentions that GWT 3.0 has "revolutionary use cases". What are you referring to?

I would add a slide that talks about some of the shortcomings of GWT. For instance:
Widgets out of the box are somewhat lacking, at least if you want eye-candy, but html5/css3 can be used to create layout, panels, and widgets. In addition, any external JS/CSS libraries could be used as well. Lastly, existing layout and other types of panels provide a good foundation for custom layouts and/or widgets.

I would also highlight (don't remember if this was mentioned) that the optimizations that GWT does on Java->Javascript, CSS, and Images, etc, are particularly well-suited for viewing your gwt-based app on mobile devices (mgwt).

Dear community members,

Recently I came across a medium sized company specializing in BI and analytics and pitched them to switch their dev stack from Angular JS to GWT. Though I am yet to know how successful I am in it I definitely managed to create some ripples and start an internal debate. 

For this I created a Google presentation here.

I invite all of you to comment, debate and create a community ready material for all who may need in future. 

Let me know if there are any issues in accessing the document.
