Subject Re: [ASJS] AS to HTML5 in action: announcing the ASJS Publisher and the VanillaSDK JS framework.

But if I understand it correctly, wouldn't it mean in Erik's model that when I create my own
custom datagrid component for instance, I would also have to write a JS version for this?
(For me personally this is what I would want to avoid -- writing JS myself :) )

Does anybody know what GWT is doing excactly and how the current paths we (the flexers) have
choosen compare to that?
To me it seems pretty nice in GWT to be writing your own HTML, and just plug in your java
(which then cross compiles).
Do you guys think this a good model?

(I'm not saying we should this or that, and that i think somebody is choosing the wrong path
right now. I think all of you guys are doing an amazing job, and I wouldn't be able to do
anything similar myself.
Just trying to make some discussion and gather info, because I think that is healthy, at all

And nice Job Erik, looking forward to experiment with it!!
