Microsoft Web Toolkit (MWT)?


Why don’t we have MWT? Google has GWT where it allows Java developers to remain in their language of choice but build AJAX applications. Hence why can’t I write a a XAML C# application, and like GWT, get the resulting application in AJAX land (XAML->HTML and C#->JavaScript)?

    Thank you!

  2. Yes, and then you could write all your Python code in C and your Rails code in Lisp and your English language user manuals in Croatian. What have you got agains JavaScript?๐Ÿ™‚

  3. They are trying. Volta. I bet their first delivery will be a Web UI layer for Lightswitch, I bet their first delivery will not be on the distributed computing scale. Nothing like GWT where transactions dominate the developer’s focus.

    โ€œWe are not against JavaScript,โ€ said Daley. โ€œWe are in favor of MSIL (Microsoft Intermediate Language. For us, JavaScript is just an assembly language. You can use Visual Basic or C# or whatever and all will compile to MSIL.โ€

  4. A Microsoft employee has a C# to JavaScript complier here: http://projects.nikhilk.net/ScriptSharp

  5. Volta is the answer. Fingers crossed for pdc.
