Are you storing source code in your database?

I'm not storing the source code, i'm storing the name of the java class in database where i have written the source code. I'm retrieving the source code name from database and i want to call that class. To call this class i need to convert this string into LayoutContainer.

It looks like you want a reflection mechanism, something like Class.forName(...)
As far as I know, that is not supported in GWT. There is a gwt reflection project on sourceforge but I have no idea of the features it offers. You might try it out.
