GWT now 100% open source, yet another framework to consider
December 13, 2006 5 Comments
Maybe it was their plan all along, condescendingly declare it open source as if doing a favor to developers. Well I wish they hadn’t.
And in my last post I was leaning towards Wicket. Now these Google guys have to go do this and increase my work. Why do we need another framework? Sun wants us to use JSF right? Is there something so seriously wrong with JSF so that we have all these other gazillion frameworks? What is going on? I hate MVC frameworks. Gaah.
So I think I’m going to stick to plain JSP / JSTL at the moment until things become more clearer. And for those who want to know, I’m having no trouble at all building a UI over Spring MVC and WebFlow. I identified the need for a couple of re-usable UI fragments and what did I do? I wrote a JSP custom tag. Easy. Nothing to it. It works. I don’t need no frigging IDE drag and drop from a palette.
