GWT 2.1by hasan adil on 12/11/2010
BeforeMotion.com just got transitioned to GWT 2.1. It wasn’t easy. For one the panel system in the user interface has been redone. The classes of DockPanel for example have been marked deprecated, and replaced by DockLayoutPanel. However, replacing DockPanel with DockLayoutPanel is not a simple textual replace operation. So it has been somewhat of a headache for Google to change the UI foundations so fundamentally. It makes sense in the long run and so perhaps it is good.
I will write a longer post next time so detail the code changes needed in order to do the transition. Come back soon!
