Google, one of the most admired practitioners of AJAX Web development, is now sharing its development secrets. The company on Tuesday released its Google Web Toolkit (GWT) for free under the open-source Apache 2.0 license.
Google also is opening GWT's development process. Design discussions, bug tracking and road-map planning now will happen in an open discussion group on the Google Code project hosting site that the company opened in August to challenge SourceForge. Google is even promising to post notes from its internal GWT planning meetings.
