Fun with GWT and Google Fusion Table

Google always strives to make things Simpler to develop and Easier to use ! 

GWT benefited tremendously from the advancement of App Engine ! 
Its also blessed by SpringSource which directly integrates into APP Engine through the ground-breaking Spring ROO. So this means less steps to follow and less boiler-plate code to write! save time by avoiding infrastructure-setup 

It was always simpler to create - say modular, reusable client-side cache, pagination table, model-ui binding API bypassing monolithic javascript libraries ! So easy it is to leverage Spring4GWT 'servlet'-less server side coding and leverage Hibernate-validation ! 

Actually it saved months of work in couple of projects ! 

How about scalability and performance ? Its a good time to adopt Ext GWT !

Well ! GWT is for Java Geeks !  How'bout common masses who just owns diverse set of data - ranging from    - geographical info, traffic data, weather info, chemical properties, physics measurement data, population info - Hey we just want to visualize our data  - we hardly care about building an App !!

Here comes Google Fusion Table - it will load your data into Cloud (read Fusion Tables) and display/ report in Visualizer UI.
