GWT (google web toolkit) pages

GWT (Google Web Toolkit) is an amazing technology. It's probably not
suited to most run-of-the-mill webpages. But for complex web-
like dynamically changing GUI interfaces to business logic databases,
it's a godsend.

GWT never http-refreshes the current html page. It uses browser
sniffing and javascript,
supplied by Google, to dynamically modify the current browser screen.
It's good stuff because you write the code in Java, and then the
Google compiler
turns it onto javascript and Ajax remote procedure calls for you. All
the low-level
browser incompatibilities are taken care of for you.

You can, for instance, chatter with a remote database and  change the
screen only when you need to.

Sooooooooooooooo. If you make pages with this Google supplied
perhaps as a sophisticated search front end to a big shopping cart
will Google be able to spider it?  Or would you be chopping your own
Google fingers off?

Re: GWT (google web toolkit) pages

 Now that I think about it, the answer is no...........GWT will not
get spidered. But the solution is easy: you cyborg GWT pages
have to include a static site map. Then you have your cake
and get to eat it too.
