I have an upcoming presentation to a small panel on the possibility of using GWT in an upcoming project. I would like to get a quote from either of the authors, if possible, that I can use concerning your experience and or benefits of using GWT.

We are currently an IBM house running Rational Application Developer, JSF and DB2. That will not change for the back-end, but I believe GWT would be the perfect front-end tool.

The target project is to provide an interface to a database for standard manipulation and report generation. Phase 1 & 2 do not require a web interface but a future phase may.

Thanks again,
Jesse

Re: Quote
I think the best source of material is going to come from from some success stories.

And maybe the productivity session from the GWT conference.

There was also a session on making a business case for GWT, but it doesn't look like it is online.
