Intro to GWT4Touch 2.0
In GWT4Touch 1.0.0 we added support for Sencha Touch 1. But because we build on top of GWT you got access to a myriade of powerful features not available in Sencha Touch. Specifically, the ability of GWT to easily talk to any backend in general. Talking to Java backends in particular is just a few line of code away.
Going into the future we aim to make GWT4Touch even more powerful by leveraging the latest Sencha Touch API, and adding custom functionality. GWT4Touch 1.1 will add support for Sencha Touch 1.1.1. Next to supporting the core Sencha Touch API, we will also add support for some exiting user extensions like the TouchGridPanel. Support for the Google Maps API will also be part of release GWT4Touch 1.1. This new API will give you the ability to write awesome map-based applications without the need to study a new API.With GWT4Touch 2 things are getting even more interesting. With version 2.0.0 of our library we are adding real GWT Widgets support. All the UI Components will then be real GWT components enabling support for features like activities, places and other goodies GWT provides. Of course, GWT4Touch2 will support Sencha Touch 2.
