I really want to have some "ROP AJAX client" too. Particularily, GWT ROP
CLient, so that we could work on Web client same way (but using async calls,
of course) we do it on ROP client. What I soon found is that currently ROP
client has very complicated logic, in fact it lives its own life. E.g. it
can do resolving lazy relationships as needed (and in the middle of
method!), which is impossible in asynchronous AJAX model. So I ended up
writing simple module that converts server-side objects to JSON.
Another problem is that unlike server-side objects, client-side objects do
not have a map for all properties (anyone knows why it was done so?),
therefore they cannot be resolved without Reflection, and GWT does not have
reflection. But, I really want to fix this in 3.1 as a step to unificate
server-side and client-side objects.
So, creating "GWT ROP Client" is a separate step, which contains several
ideas from ROP, but should have its own architecture.
