    Simple example of GWT integration

    Eric Manuguerra Newbie

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to use ERRAI to implement a simple prototype showing data push and repetitive UI update.

       

      I have seen that the messaging bus of ERRAI is a really nice feature.

       

      I have started from the ERRAI Maven archteype, which is nicely working (I even deployed it very easily on Open Shift).

       

      But since yesterday, I haven't been able to integrate GWT component such as DockLayoutPanel or LayoutPanel (http://code.google.com/intl/fr-FR/webtoolkit/doc/latest/DevGuideUiPanels.html).

       

      I am a complete GWT newbie.

       

      I would just like to create a 4 or 5 zone panel and add content to it by calling backend services.

       

      But if I modify the HelloWorldClient to add a a DockLayoutPanel to the root panel instead of the HorizontalPanel of the example the browser only displays the north part of the panel.

       

      I don't know what's wrong, since there is no server neither client error.

       

      This is the code :

       

           @PostConstruct

                public void buildUI() {

       

               // Sample from GWT tutorials

               DockLayoutPanel p = new DockLayoutPanel(Unit.EM)

                    p.addNorth(new HTML("north"), 2);

                    p.addSouth(new HTML("south"), 2);

                    p.addEast(new HTML("east"), 2);

                    p.addWest(new HTML("west"), 2);

                    p.add(new HTML("center"));

       

               RootPanel.get().add(p);

       

               System.out.println("UI Constructed!");

                }

       

      Does anybody knows a sample GWT / ERRAI application with a layout structure ?

       

      Thanks,

      Best regards,

      Eric
