OpenUnderwriter is delighted to announce the arrival of Google Web Toolkit (GWT) into the project.
We chose GWT to provide a richer and more interactive web UI experience for end users of the OpenUnderwriter product suite. We looked at a few other technologies for the job including JQuery, Vaadin and Yahoo-UI, but in the end GWT won through for us on its cross-browser support, flexible internationalisation, responsiveness and rich features. Plus, being Java based makes it consistent with the rest of the OpenUnderwriter project.
