Using Google Web Toolkit

The Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a Java-centric framework for creating AJAX applications. GWT cross-compiles Java source into JavaScript, allowing Java developers to use their existing Java skills and tools to create AJAX apps. GWT lead Bruce Johnson intros GWT including high-performance AJAX, internationalization, and integration with existing web app.

Bruce Johnson is works at Google as Tech Lead of the Google Web Toolkit (GWT). Prior to joining Google, Bruce wrote a Visual Basic cross-compiler for mobile, a portable version of Microsoft COM for non-MS embedded devices, but without question, cross-compiling Java into JavaScript for GWT is his funnest achievement.
