Re: GWT 2.9 compatiblity with GXT 2.3.1a

When we have migrated to GWT 2.6, We changed the GXT com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.image.XImages class to extend ClientBundle and changed its methods to return an ImageResource. After that, we changed the components to utilize ImageResource instead of AbstractImagePrototype. We made some other minor fixes which I don't remember now. We have been using newer versions since its launch without problems with these modifications. We have tested the version GWT 2.9.0 with this update and worked fine for us.

Priya said about version GWT 2.8.2, because of that I believe her company has made some updates on GXT by yourselves. And about the migration from 2.8.2 to 2.9.0, in my company, we haven't had problems with that. :)

There are multiple problems with using GXT 2.x with a recent version of GWT (anything since GWT 2.6 or so, released in 2014). Sencha hasn't offered support for GXT 2 since version 4 was released (and doesn't appear to provide support for GXT 4 any longer either), but the last time I ran into this, I was able to successfully change a few .java files in the jar and recompile to continue using GXT 2.

But as Michael said, while GWT 2.6, 2.7, 2.8, 2.9 have added features and browser support, these will not necessarily help old GXT builds to have bug fixes also, though it may still improve your compiled output size and runtime performance.

Hi All,

Currently our application has below versions -
1. GWT - 2.8.2
2. GXT - 2.3.1a

We are planning to upgrade GWT from 2.8.2 to 2.9.0. But have query regarding its compatibility towards GXT 2.3.1a.
I have gone through GXT Compatiblity version matrix page, but found nowhere officially mentioned that its supported.
So can you please confirm that GWT 2.9 is officially supported with GXT 2.3.1a?
