Join Kyle Gower-Winter for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning GWT.
- [Narrator] If you have access to the exercise files, and wish to follow along with the code, open the exercise files folder, where you'll find each chapter has it's own sub-folder. Within the chapter, each video has it's own sub-folder. For example, Chapter 3, subsection 2, we have a start and an end state. The start state is what the code looks like before we begin the video, and the end state is what it looks like at the end of the video.
If you'd like to pick up where we begin with Chapter 3, Video 2, click on the start sub-folder and you'll find a zip file. This is the project that we'll need to import into the IDE that you're using. We'll be using Eclipse, and I'm about to demonstrate how to import this project into Eclipse. In Eclipse, go to File, Import, choose the General category, and then choose Existing Projects Into Workspace, and click Next.
Since this is a zip file, we're going to choose Select archive file, and browse for that folder. That folder was in the Exercise Files, Chapter 3, Video 2, Start, and there it is. Select the file and click Open, then click Finish. And there it is, imported into Eclipse. And we're ready to begin.
In this course, learn how to build high-performance, browser-based apps using GWT. Kyle Gower-Winter introduces you to GWT, explaining the benefits of using this toolkit to build dynamic web pages. To help you practice what you learn, he shows how to build a simple foreign exchange rate application. Plus, Kyle covers managing AJAX events on the client, handling UI action events, debugging code, and more.
- Creating and running a GWT application
- Working with GWT widgets and UiBinder
- Manage AJAX events on the client
- Using a GWT RequestBuilder object
- Debugging in the browser
- Setting breakpoints and inspecting variables
- Running locally in production mode
