Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open source Java development framework that facilitates the development and debuggging of AJAX applications in the Java language using Java development tools. When a GWT application is deployed to production, the GWT compiler translates the Java application to browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML.

GWT development cycle

1. Use Java IDE to write and debug an application in the Java language
2. Utilize GWT libraries
3. Use GWT's Java-to-JavaScript compiler to distill application into a set of JavaScript and HTML files
4. Test application in different browsers
