Chapter 4. Software Engineering for Ajax > Setting Up the Development Environme...

Setting Up the Development Environment

To build applications with GWT, you need the Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.4 or greater. Many other Java tools can also assist with your development, such as an IDE like Eclipse or a build tool like Ant. All of these tools bring a lot of value to the process of building Ajax applications. It is important to note that users don’t need any of these tools to use your application. They do not even need to have Java installed on their computer; they only need a reasonably modern web browser like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, or Opera. The GWT compiler compiles your application so it conforms to web-standard technology.
