Logging can provide invaluable process information during and after development and while you’re debugging. It can be completely compiled out, or added back to assist you with debugging in production, and can be customized for your particular application to render exactly the details you need. In this article, you’ll learn about the three main logging mechanisms built into GWT.

Migrating Styles & Themes from Ext GWT 2 to Sencha GXT 3

Migrating Styles & Themes from Ext GWT 2 to Sencha GXT 3

August 22, 2012 | Tony Stuart

In Ext GWT 2, component styles were defined in a single large CSS file. Developers could extend or redefine the styles in this file to control the appearance of a component or define a custom theme. Although this made it easy to give components a new look, it was hard to determine the relationship between the styles in the CSS file and the components in the library. Furthermore, there was no assurance that all of the styles in the CSS file were needed, or that the styles needed for a particular component were actually defined in the CSS file.

With some simple changes to the basic chart setup, you can make your visualizations even more explanatory and expressive.

Ext GWT 3.0 State API

Ext GWT 3.0 State API

April 05, 2012 | Darrell Meyer

The Ext GWT 3.0 State API provides the ability to persist state information. The API supports saving state data to different persistence providers. These include providers based on cookies and HTML5 local storage. The data are saved and retrieved as a map from string keys to string values. State data are serialized to strings and deserialized to objects via the bean-like interfaces of GWT AutoBeans. This data is retrieved asynchronously, and this allows for asynchronous providers such as those that communicate via RPC.
