The tutorial was developed using JDK , GWT and Eclipse .. UIBinder allows to design GWT UI’s declarative via XML. Create a new. How to simplify your overall layout using XML-based markup instead of doing it all in Java. In this section, we explorer two import concepts – GWT UiBinder and In the above example, the Composite WrapperWidget wraps the Label.

GWT supports a standard set of UI widgets, has build in support for the browser back button and a JUnit based test framework. GWT applications are described as modules. A module “modulename” is described by a configuration file “modulename.

GWT – UiBinder

Each module can define one or more Entry point classes. An entry point is the starting point for a GWT application, similar to the main method in a standard Java program. A Java class which is an entry point must implement the interface “com. EntryPoint” which defines the method onModuleLoad. The module is connected to a HTML page, which is called “host page”. You use the Java method setStyle String s for this. Google lists the currently supported version in its Google Plug-in for Eclipse page.

For example the update site for the Eclipse 4. The following is a description of the usage of the Google plug-in to create a new GWT application. Enter the name “de. This file defines your entry point to your application. In GWT the entry point is similar to the main method in Java.

Change this file to the following. The Google Plugin created also a web. Change the CSS of our application. Change it to the following. This opens a new view “Development Mode. Copy the url from this view. If you investigate your example from the last chapter you will see the following project structure.

XML file which specifies mainly the entry point of the application. Gqt has the name of your module plus. Additional public resources, e. All Java gutorial which is compiled for the client Webbrowser must be stored under client. For the service you would use the package “server”. It also defines standard GWT css styles which you are using. Debugging a GWT application in development mode is easy.

In this case you can just debug the Java code. You can then use standard Eclipse debugging capabilities. Please see Eclipse Debugging for details. GWT allows Java objects to be sent directly between the client and the server; which are automatically serialized by the framework.


The server-side servlet is usually referred to as a “service” and the remote procedure call is referred to as “invoking a service. Gwy a GWT project “de.

Create the following class which represents the data model. This class implements “Serializable” because GWT requires that all classes that are involved in a server and client communication have to implement the interface “Serializable”.

The client server communication is based on an interface which defines the possible communication methods. Create the following interface. The annotation defines the URL for the service. This must match the entry we will later do in web.

GWT uses asynchronous communication therefore you also need to create the asynchronous version of this interface. The name of this interface must be the interface name concatenated with hibinder. For the server implementation create a package “de. Create the following class which extends RemoteServiceServlet. Create the following two classes which will be used to display the data in a table. The implementation of “MyTable” is based on FlexTable.

FlexTable allows the building of tables in GWT. To receive a callback a class needs to be implemented which can then react on a failure or success in the communication.

The interface AsyncCallback defines these two methods: The eclipse console shows the values of the users send to uibinddr Google Web application via the service. Create a new GWT project “de. To use UIBinder you also need to inherit from “com. UiBinder” in your “gwt. Create the following class which uses the xml file for building actions.

The standard approach in Java is to have tutoriak projects for separate purposes. For example the domain model of the application is usually defined in its own project.

This is bad practice as it leads to code duplication which is inherently evil. Uibindeer chapter describes how you can make these projects available to the GWT compiler as modules. GWT need to have access to the source files to compile them into Javascript code. Create a Java project “de. Create the following class.

Create in package “de. This will be the module definition for GWT. We want to use this model in a GWT project. Create therefore a new GWT project “de. GWT allows you to build your own components based on other widgets.


To do this you extends com. These customer components can be used as normal GWT components. Building components is simple, you just offer the API your component should publish and then you call with each widget the initWidget method.

For example you can create the following component which is a simple header label I assume you can easily image a more complex example. Free use of the software examples is granted under the terms of the Eclipse Public License 2. This article assumes basic Eclipse and Java knowledge.

The tutorial was developed using JDK 1. Unfortunately the Google Plugin does not allow to create a new Web Application Project without creating template files. The template files are nice for the first try but annoying if you want to start from scratch with a new GWT application.

EntryPoint ; import com. ClickEvent ; import com. ClickHandler ; import com. Window ; import com.

Button ; import com. Label ; import com. If you are using a different project name, you need to adjust the path. The css file is referred to by the HTML page. Paste this url in your browser and install the required plug-in is necessary. GWT Project Structure Overview If you investigate your example from the last chapter you will see the following project structure. An interface which extends Tutorisl that lists the service methods.

An implementation – uiibnder the interface and extends the RemoteServiceServlet. Define an asynchronous interface to your service which will be used in the client code. Create project and domain model Create a GWT project “de. Interface The client server communication is based on an interface which defines uiibnder possible communication methods.

List ; import com. RemoteService ; import com. RemoteServiceRelativePath ; import de. Ukbinder interface needs to be available on the client side, therefore it must be placed in the client package. AsyncCallback ; import de. The implementation of this asynchronous interface will be automatically created by the GWT compiler. Create the server For the server implementation create a package “de.

ArrayList ; import java.
