Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.


I've posted two message to the GWT Google Group in the last couple of days. However, new member messages are moderated and neither has shown up yet. I'm reposting my questions here in hopes of getting some answers.

Is there a way to easily use a REST backend with GWT? I tried GWT-REST. It works, but it seems to be centered towards Rails (I'm using Grails) and it suffers from the SOP issue.

JSONRequest looks promising for cross-domain support, but I can't get it to work either. The provided examples work, but not my simple hello world that returns:

{"response":"Hello World!"}

Also, the example implementation only has GET support, not PUT, DELETE or POST. I can post my REST backend on the public internet if anyone is interested in seeing the issues I'm having.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
