It was once thought there would be a time when Java would be the only language a developer would need to program every tier of a system. Yet despite the great advances in virtual machines, the proliferation of devices running them, the proliferation of frameworks, and advances in the language itself, in one important way, it's reach, is on the wane.

This talk will discuss how and why this is possible and explore whether GWT has the potential to change this.
