Chris Ramsdale interviewed Matthias Büchner, Software Engineer at digital security company, Gemalto. In the blog post, Matthias shares his team’s experience with migrating their application from ASP.NET to Google Web Toolkit.

In summary, his team was pleased with GWT and they liked the following features:

  • Developing in a single language: Java. Their previous code base consisted of ASP.NET, JavaScript and CSS.
  • Compile time checks, debugger and using a professional IDE
  • Support for unit tests, integration tests and mock objects

A very good read if you are still evaluating GWT. See the blog post for details.
