We're number 1!

I found a neat app called RankForest, which simplifies an authors task of checking their Amazon sales statistics every 20 minutes. Looks like Pro Web 2.0 Application Development with GWT is doing well! (Ok that's #1 out of GWT books and not #1 out of all books on Amazon, but still, considering there's no magic wands in the whole book it's not bad. Amazon Top 100)

The book also got it's first review on Amazon the other day and I'm pleased to report that that was positive as well. Whew.

Thanks to everyone who came to my talk on Real GWT Applications at TheServerSide Prague. If you missed it, the presentation is up on ToCollege.net's download section. I focussed on the three stumbling blocks that I've found when using GWT. Design patterns for integration with a web framework, Hibernate, and Security.

Congratulations on the book and thanks for giving Rankforest a try. Let me know if there's ever anything I can do for you.

Thanks. I like your book. In fact I am using it as the central theme in a graduate course on web design.

Do you have a soft-copy of the url's you reference throughout the book? There are many (good), but typing them all in (painful).

Hey Jeff,
Ug, sorry about those URLs. I can't tell you how silly it seemed writing those out in the digital age. In retrospect I should definitely have done TinyURL. If there's a chapter or two in particular that you're looking for, let me know and I'll get you a soft draft.

Great to hear that you're enjoying the book.
