Now available: the Smart GWT QuickStart Guide.
This is the first piece of documentation to read when learning about Smart GWT.Â It is structured as a set of brief introductions to the major features of Smart GWT, with hands-on code samples you can run and experiment with, and links to deeper documentation to learn more.
This guide also introduces a huge amount of new material on the Smart GWT Server Framework and how it is intended to be used.Â Even if you’ve already been working with Smart GWT Pro/EE for a while, you should read these sections – even some internal Isomorphic developers learned new things while reviewing the guide.
