For developers like myself who have worked with small-scale GWT projects, this book directly answers many of the issues that one encounters when scaling up the project. Examples of these issues are: the most effective way to pass Hibernate classes back to the client using GWT, and how to most efficiently handle a large project through either single (or multiple) modules.
Please note that this book will not teach you GWT; if you are not familiar with GWT, other books (or even the GWT website) would be superior resources.
The only two issues I had with this book were:
* It would be nice if there was chapter-by-chapter source code available so you could more easily mimic the steps in creating the application. Matching the chapter-by-chapter progress to the final source code was a little tedious.
* The author's choice of technologies for the back-end is great (Spring, Hibernate, FreeMarker templates), but if you are an EJB/JBoss/Seam/Wicket shop, you will be doing a lot of translation from the Spring-domain to your particular choice of technology.
Overall, this book is highly recommended and will make deploying GWT much easier on medium and large-scale projects. The author has done a great job in solving common GWT problems; issues that an enterprise architect will surely encounter when using GWT.
He covers his decision making process for the full stack and gives outlines of Maven, Acegi, Compass, Hibernate, Spring MVC, SiteMesh, FreeMarker as well as GWT and Gears. That's a lot to cover in around 400 pages. In fact I have 2 books on my desk that cover just Hibernate and Spring that weigh in at over 700 pages each, so obviously he doesn't go into much depth, but he does point you to online resources to dig deeper.
Jeff does a decent job of covering some of the key pinch points and offers some good advice which is why I'm not giving this book 1 star.
