San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2010

Instantiations®, Inc., a leading provider of Eclipse-based commercial software tools and services to improve software code quality, security and productivity, today announced an upgrade to its popular GWT Designer GUI creation tool to version 7.5. GWT Designer v7.5 adds new widget kit support for Smart GWT, plus enhanced support for the Ext GWT (GXT) Rich Internet Application Java library.

GWT Designer helps developers rapidly create GUIs in Eclipse and GWT/Java and then deploy them as web applications, without having to learn JavaScript. The product supports popular add-on widget libraries such as Ext GWT (GXT) and GWT-Ext, adding support for Smart GWT with the latest release. Smart GWT is a GWT-based framework with a comprehensive widget library for building application UIs that also tie the widgets in with the server-side for data management.
