GWT makes building a rich Ajax browser client interface even easier than building traditional Java GUI interfaces. As fabulous as GWT is, however, it can't create an entire Web application by itself. You must still have a data store on the server and some kind of framework for converting that data into Java objects that GWT can pass from the server to its client.
After a couple weeks of fixing all the issues our developer community has so diligently reported in the issue tracker , we are happy to announce the official release of Google Web Toolkit 1.2 today. As we mentioned when we released the 1.2 Release Candidate, you can now develop and debug with GWT on Mac OS X in addition to Linux and Windows. We are pretty proud of this particular feature because GWT is now about as "platform independent" as you can get: develop on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X and deploy to IE, Firefox, Safari and Opera on any platform, without any special cases in your code. (If you want a bit more detail about our implementation of Mac OS X support, our release nomenclature and other tidbits, this recent InfoQ interview may interest you.) We also have already talked about how much faster the 1.2 hosted mode debugging environment is.
