By now, you have probably heard of Google Web Toolkit (GWT). You know that it lets you write your Web applications in the Java™ programming language that is compiled into JavaScript to run in Web browsers. This lets you be more productive by taking advantage of Java's static typing and great tools like Eclipse. You have may seen some of the useful and stylish widgets built on top of GWT. What you may not know is that GWT lets you create high-performance Web applications. In this article, we look at how you can use the Google Plug-in with Eclipse Galileo to tap into the performance features of GWT, such as compiler optimizations, deferred binding, and Ajax optimizations. Developer performance is still an important part of GWT, so along the way, we will also show you how tweak the Google Plug-in for Eclipse to increase your productivity.
