View Full Version : ExtJS vs Ext GWT for Java Enterprise application

10 Oct 2010, 11:15 AM

I'm programming with ExtJS for 5 years now and I think it is the best framework to use if you are building a web enterprise application. I used PHP and Java in the past. Anyway, short time ago we decided to start a new project based on Spring 3.0 and dm server (OSGI based development).

My question is - what do you suggest - shoud we use GXT or ExtJS for our front end?
I don't know much about GXT and my concerns are related with versions - If a new version of ExtJS comes out, how much time is needed that GXT follows? If I have a component in ExtJS, what is needed to rewrite it in GXT?

Thanks in advance for any answers.

I would only recommend Ext GWT to Java developers without Ext JS knowledge.

If you already know Ext JS then stick with that and just build JSON based interfaces in Spring.

Thanks Condor. I was also thinking the same.
