Hmm. I confess I didn't do much more than read google's blurb:

"GWT lets you avoid many of these headaches while offering your users the
same dynamic, standards-compliant experience. You write your front end in
the Java <http://java.sun.com/> programming language, and the GWT compiler
converts your Java classes to browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML."

but still a little puzzled by your comments. My rock is too heavy! Help!
