Back when Google Web Toolkit (GWT) was first released in 2006 I was still working for
Opera Software and thought it would be an interesting side-project to see if
it was possible to create a W3C Widget using GWT.
A couple of months ago, after
holding a presentation about Widgets on mobile phones the question of
whether it would be possible to develop Widgets with GWT came up and I decided
to finally create the proof of concept.
