Life as a tool junkie

Is the ultimate goal in life to get the must stuff or to use the most tools? Tools of course! ;) And by tools I mean programming related tools and frameworks.

Today I browsed the web in search for a tool or framework to use as a view, in a MVC-based spring servlet. Normal JSP code is not the easiest thing to code when you want to build a dynamic website (the definition of a dynamic website is: "Whooosh! Now it's there, now it's not").

The closest thing I've got is the Google Web Toolkit (GWT). Altough GWT has some drawbacks when it comes to integration into an existing site it is quite nice to code Java-like code and then compile it into Javascript.

  1. As far as i know, dynamic web is also server side generation of the web pages, i.e. no whooosh on the page when displayed.
