Will there be official support for GWT Designer for GXT 3.0?
If not, is there any other GUI builder/designer tool we can use with GXT 3.0?
Asking this because of this info from Google team(Eric Clayberg on google groups):
"We (Google) have no plans to provide support
for GXT 3 on our end. Support for GXT 3 is a very big project, and now that
GWT Designer is open source along with the rest of GPE, this is a project
more appropriate for Sencha to undertake (and I encourage you to suggest to
them that they do this). In fact, our position going forward is that 3rd
party component providers should provide GWTD support on their end as they
are in the best position to do so.
While the set of GXT components is more-or-less the same, the
implementation is absolutely different and has even moved to the new
namespace "com.sencha.gxt". This means that the existing GWTD support for
GXT will absolutely not work. Supporting GXT 3 will require a new set of
wbp-component.xml descriptions, new models, new GEF parts, new wizards,
etc. GXT 3 now has some support for UiBinder, so this will almost double
the effort required for full support. The existing implementation can
certainly be used as a source of ideas (and discreet pieces of source), and
we would be happy to answer questions for anyone who wants to undertake
I'm guessing that this would be a 2-4 month project for someone with GXT
expertise as well as Eclipse/GEF experience. Picking up the needed WB/GWTD
pieces should be fairly easy using the existing GXT 2.x support as a
