    Default Is GXT an other name for ExtGwt or an other product from Sencha ?

    Is GXT an other name for ExtGwt or an other product from Sencha ?


    Hi,

    We think about adopting GWT. So, we have to make some architectural choices and we look at available candidate solutions.

    First we understand :
    - Ext-Gwt is a wrapper for javascript library ExtJs
    - SmartGwt is a wrapper for javascript library SmartClient
    - Gwt-Ext is a wrapper for old version of javascript library ExtJs (not an option for us)

    But secondly, we read that Sencha also produce GXT which is not a GWT wrapper for javascript library but a GWT extension from Sencha company. Ok, nice, but unfortunately GXT doesn't appear in Sencha product list.

    So we are in doubt. GXT is an other name for Ext-Gwt, an other product, or nothing at all ?

    Thanks

    Some answers from http://code.google.com/intl/fr-FR/we...s/gwt/gxt.html :
    - Ext GWT (GXT) is a Java library for building rich internet applications with the Google Web Toolkit (GWT)
    - Native GWT solution with no external JavaScript or 3rd party libraries

    So :
    - it seems that GXT is just an other name for ExtGwt. Also i have found references to GXT in ExtGwt reference documentation. again some marketing confusing terms ...

    - but finaly this is not a wrapper for extjs library but a full java solution (GWT extension) like i first thought before to be confused (perhaps it was a wrapper in the past and become a full java solution more recently, that could also explain confusion between GXT and ExtGwt product names)

    This is correct.

    Ext GWT, or also named GXT, is not a wrapper around Ext JS but fully written in Java.
    GWT Ext was a wrapper around Ext JS but is no longer under active development and was also not maintained by Sencha
    SmartGWT is a wrapper around SmartClient.

    ExtGwt's roadmap and the next 3.0 version seems very interesting.
    I'll deep further into developers pre-release
