If you're like us, the first thing you want to do is see examples of what you can do with GWT.
- Samples are included in the SDK for you to play around with and build off of. A few are below. Some are from the App Engine SDK that use GWT for their front end.
- Real world projects let you see the real power of GWT, with complex applications that developers are building.
If you'd like to see who else is using GWT, check out the GWT Gallery. You'll be able to find other applications and libraries built with GWT, comment on them, rate them, and search for them by tag or by name. You can also submit your own entry if you have a project that you want to share.
You can also find a wide variety of open source projects related to GWT hosted on Google Code.
