Google Web Toolkit Is Now Open Source Project

In December Google decided to open its Google Web Toolkit (GWT) as an open source project. I am not much of a programmer but this is how Google explains the new development. “You write your front end in the Java programming language, and the GWT compiler converts your Java classes to browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML.”

The new service will enable programmers to write easy AJAX applications and will save the headache of working around “subtle incompatibilities between web browsers and platforms”. Google Code Blog has more details.

Another Google product Google Custom Search Engine also added new features in December to improve collaboration between users. According to Search Engine Land you will be able to view email addresses of contributors, send invitation. and view the work of participants, who works on your search engine.

This is the last post for 2006. Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a healthy and happy New Year!
