[ajug-members] Who does client application work?

This isn't a true client app but I figured I would chime in since it is not
a traditional web application either. I recently started a new job working
on a brand spanking new application. I got to start from scratch (yay). I
have to use GWT (not so yay). In anticipation of needing to develop a
quality app out of the gate, before starting the job, I did a lot of
reading (Pro GWT) and studying up on GWT, the APIs, and design patterns. I
also wrote a small app for fun. This helped out tremendously as I was able
to hit the ground running on day 1.
My background is mainly web apps using spring mvc, struts, jsf, or various
other frameworks. Coding in GWT is very much Swing-like. I have not spent
much time doing swing development (very little actually). GWT is just OK
for me. There are lots of idiosyncracies involved since the java code is
have a staff of experienced swing people and would like to move them in to
web development. I would personally have chosen JSF to write the app I am
working on. Digging deeper, I used GIN for dependency injection. It is
basically guice for GWT. Since I was using guice in the client I went
ahead and used guice on the server as well. This is my first time using
guice and I like it. Especially since I can use CDI annotations. I am
going to try and hold off sucking in the spring dependencies as long as
but I am not completely turned off from GWT.
