At times the problem with Java eco-system is its complexity due to availability plethora of choice of tools/frameworks. Getting a basic application with appropriate stack working is the big hurdle.

Same goes with the effort to get the GwtSpringHibernate stack working.

There have been lots of references about Gilead and Gwt-Sl libraries and how to use them to glue the stacks together but couldn’t find a complete deploy-able application. Hence this post.

Here is a complete deploy-able war file and its source. The example uses the following libraries.

  • Smart Gwt
  • Gwt
  • Gwt-Sl
  • Gilead
  • Spring
  • Hibernate
  • Hsqldb

Download the war, deploy and test it. Explore the source to get the understanding of stack. Post a comment if you have any questions.
