The UiBinder framework allows you to build your apps as HTML pages with GWT widgets sprinkled throughout them.
- [Instructor] Now that we have a grounding…in the main UI elements of GWT,…let's discuss the UiBinder framework.…If you have a history of Web development,…you know there has been a shift of best practices…from using tables to using divs for page layouts.…So, of course, we'd want to keep using divs…even though we're developing in Java.…However, if we want to maintain control of the layout…of the page and not rely on generated HTML,…as would happen when building the layout in Java,…you could build it from scratch with native HTML…using divs and spans and ID elements,…but that introduces other issues…of cross-browser compatibility…and generally increases complexity all around.…
That's why, with this release,…or rather, with the GWT 2.0 release back in 2009,…UiBinder was introduced.…In very laymen terms, UiBinder allows you…to define the layout of the page in XML and HTML…but still offers the flexibility of adding…Java-based GWT widgets anywhere in that HTML.…To give you a better understanding,…let's just go ahead and create a UiBinder widget.…
