Re: [equinox-dev] Re: GWT and Equinox

I've deployed for my client a prototype application based on:
- Google Web Toolkit for client side logic
- running HttpService (Jetty), poviding compiled GWT application via http.registry
- small startup application as  Eclipse RCP app, including a browser widget which refers to localhost:8080 and GWT application

Additionally I am just preparing deployment for a hosted version, which will run on Tomcat using Servlet Bridge.
So, if you have a bundle/plugin based application, you are quite flexible in providing different deployment scenarios.

Quite simple and easy to use. All based on standard Eclipse technology and tooling, doing standard RCP product deployment for multiple platforms, creating WAR files, ...

I also recommend using the GWT Tooling from Gunnar. It is quite simple to use. It also supports GWT modules split up into different Eclipse projects, so you can structure your GWT source code along your component model.

Interesting. We also covered this topic in our EclipseCon tutorial:
(3719) Building Server-Side Eclipse based web applications [Part 2]
page 39-44.

You can grab the GWT Planet Eclipse Viewer examples here:

Or use the project set:

But I'm wondering why he had to use buddy class loading. It wasn't
necessary for the tutorial projects I created. The servlet is defined in
the bundle that has access to the classes anyway.

BTW, I highly recommend my GWT plug-in for GWT development. ;)
