Unanswered: GXT component as webservice
I'm totally new on GXT and I was wondering if it is possible to create a component which will be used by an external application as a web service ?
In other words can an external application call a web service which will render a GXT component ?
Not sure if the vocabulary is correct here.
To my knowledge, a Web service is just an API, allowing to act on the server, or to get back some data, textual or not. If it "returns" a GUI component, it is no longer a "service", but more an application, needing to listen and react to events, etc.
And, well, if that's to be "used by an external application" and not by a user, why do you need a GUI?
