Let us understand the concepts of AngularJS and Google Web Toolkit (GWT) before learning the differences between them.

Google Web Toolkit

It is an open-source set of tools which allows creating and maintaining JavaScript front-end applications in Java by the web developers. It was launched in the year 2006 by Google and the code is written in Java.

The operating system that supports GWT is Linux, Windows, OS X, FreeBSD. It helps in creating RICH Internet Applications. It helps in converting java source code to equivalent JavaScript.

Features

The features of Google Web Toolkit are as follows −

  • Dynamic
  • Reusable UI components
  • Simple RPC mechanism
  • Browser history management
  • Support for full-featured Java debugging
  • GWT handles cross-browser issues
  • Unit testing integration
  • Support for Internationalization and localization
  • HTML Canvas support
  • Open source
  • Completely free

Advantages

The advantages of Google Web Toolkit are as follows −

  • Provide Object Oriented programming.
  • Great debugging
  • Compile time checks
  • Hide complexity
  • Create highly responsive web applications.
  • Full control
  • Portability.
  • No need to learn JavaScript language.

Disadvantages

The disadvantages of Google Web Toolkit are as follows −

  • Java to JavaScript compiler is slow.
  • It is an advantage only for Java developers.
  • Non-trivial development model.
  • Plenty of design options
  • Big learning curve.

AngularJS

It is a JavaScript-based open-source front-end web framework which is used for developing single-page applications. It was launched in the year 2010 by Google. It was written in JavaScript language.

Features

The features of Angular JS are as follows −

  • Data Binding
  • Not Browser Specific
  • Dependency Injection
  • Codeless
  • Speed and Performance
  • Architecture
  • Deep Linking
  • Routing
  • Directives
  • Productivity

Advantages

The advantages of Angular JS are as follows −

  • Fast development process
  • Advanced testing features
  • Model view controller balance
  • Open source
  • Easy to test
  • Google support
  • Easy to customize
  • Single page application.

Disadvantages

The disadvantages of Angular JS are as follows −

  • Less secure
  • Relatively slow
  • Memory leakage
  • JavaScript based
  • Not supported everywhere
