    Default Clientside file generation with GWT(GXT)

    Beeing able to generate files on the client is a common requirement and a usefull feature for a webapplication .
    In one of our applications for example we have users generating reports every 30-45 seconds. By beeing able to do that on the client we do not need to scale our servers when the number of users grows.

    Gwt4Air (http://code.google.com/p/gwt4air/) introduced in version 2.1 a File API that uses Flex and let u create files(PDF , Excel, Text, PNG, JPEG...) on the client by adding a Flex widget into your GWT application. The problem with that approach is that you needed to load an entire instance of the Flex framework just to be able to read/write files on the client

    Gwt4air 2.2 will introcude a more lightweigt solution that does not require Flex(Flash is still needed dough). Please take a minute to visit:

    http://gwt4air.googlecode.com/svn/tr...er/GwtAir.html

    to see the preview in action

    I m lookig forward to hearing your feedback.

    Regards,

    Alain

    I have changed the demo to demonstrate exporting a GXT(2.XXX) chart to a PNG image.
    Exporting to others formats(PDF, JPEG, etc.. ) will also be possible
    cheers,
