GWT Designer 5.1 Released

GWT Designer

Instantiations has just released version 5.1 of GWT Designer, their popular GUI building plugin for GWT. This new version brings GWT 1.5 support and also basic integration with the MyGWT (yes, the old version) and GWT-Ext widget libraries. It is also backward compatible with GWT 1.4.62.

From their press release:

GWT Designer is an Eclipse-based graphical user interface (GUI) creation tool supporting features such as drag-and-drop GUI building and bi-directional code generation, providing several useful wizards that help make GWT development easier. It allows developers to focus on creating and testing rich Internet applications using Eclipse, Java and GWT without worrying about the complexities of AJAX coding. GWT Designer uses wizards, WYSIWYG builders, composites, layouts and controls.

GWT Designer is available on a subscription basis and costs $59 for 1 year, $99 for 2 years or $139 for 3 years with one year of support. Existing GWT Designer subscribers can upgrade to version 5.1 for free. There is also a two-week trial available on their download page.

I haven’t tried the new version yet, but the old version of GWT Designer has worked quite nicely for me. Anyone else want to share their experiences with GWT Designer?

Not to sound like a shill for Instantiations…but this product is great. They integrate all the server side/client side for GWT-RPC, their visual designers have always been top notch, and their general support for all of GWT is second to none. Sure you can use some of the free tools or just tough it out using an editor and command line, but Eclipse plus GWT Designer is an absolute knock out of a development environment. Well, well worth the $59!!!

This looks great! I’d recommend anyone using it to not skimp because of the cost.
