I find the Ext Framework very useful in developing Web Apps. I am a programming student still schooling and would like to knoe, if I can use this Framework in developing Desktop-Apps (standalone RIA) with this Framework. Ich have search everywhere on the net but I could not find any thing about this.
Nope. I renders the UI to a browser and that is the whole point of GWT.
If you only wish to have it work on a desktop, why not just try Swing?
I know swing would work. But I just wanted everything/the development to be much easier und faster. I am trying to find some thing or develop an app, where the admin work on the desktop (may connected to the local server or from home connected to the web server) and other user most especially customers would then user the online portal.
Actually I was thing about doing something like ebay desktop for web sites using the Ext GWT toolkit.
Thanks a lot for your explanations. I known understand the framework a little bit besser.
It's my understanding that Adobe AIR can compile Html/JS applications onto its platform. So, theoretically, you could use the output of the GWT compiler and shove that onto Adobe Air.
Although, as previous posters have said, if all you want is a destkop application, why even bother with RIA technologies? You'll be better suited by using a GUI framework that was made for desktop applications.
