GWT frontend to a Django backend?

Yeah, that's exactly what someone's managed. Read more about it here and try out the app he built using this approach.
I've been saying "If only I could do the UI for my Rails apps in GWT" for a while now. Hmm...

Sidu,

Take a look at GWT-on-Rails: http://code.google.com/p/gwt-on-rails/
http://www.kaboomerang.com/blog/2007/11/29/getting-to-10-actiontastic-actionatr-gwt-and-automagic-rest/

The promise of this approach is using ActiveRecord instead of Hibernate + DTOs at the backend.

Apparently Pibb used a similar architecture - GWT client, Rails + Python. http://ajax.phpmagazine.net/2007/05/pibb_gwt_openid_communication.html

Hey Sidu,

Jonathan here from about a year ago when we met back at TWI. I ran into this while working with GWT. Thought I would have to take the chance to say hi! How's Activ?
