Red Hat is bringing a range of developer and production support to the Google Web Toolkit, and begun integrating GWT and JBoss Seam Framework. The efforts aim to speed design, development and deployment of Web 2.0 and Rich Internet Applications.

Red Hat has announced that it has signed the Google Contributor Agreement, and preliminary integration between GWT and JBoss Seam Framework to architecture to help developers easily combine the power of enterprise Java with the modern view-layer technologies like GWT, RichFaces and Spring.

"The flexibility and open architecture of JBoss Seam 2.0 made this integration with Google Web Toolkit and partnership with Google possible," said Craig Muzilla, vice president of Red Hat's JBoss middleware business, in a statement. "By partnering with Google, JBoss is demonstrating our commitment to fostering developer choice. We believe developers should be able to select technology such as GWT, Spring Framework and Adobe Flex while using JBoss to provide the best operational and most flexible platform for running their applications."

Launched in 2006, Google's GWT is an open source project to allow Java developers use the richness of Ajax in a cross-platform, web-friendly environment. For users, GWT improves the web experience. .

Red Hat has been a long-term partner with Google over next-gen applications and integration issues. Most recently, Google selected a combined group from the Fedora Project and JBoss.org Community as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code 2008, a program offering student developers stipends to write code for open source projects, Red Hat said.

In 2007, Red Hat introduced JBoss Portal integration with Google Gadgets, so developers could easily add pre-built Google Gadget components onto a portal, while Google announced the open source availability of Hibernate Shards, a framework developed by Google software engineers that adds support for horizontal partitioning to JBoss Hibernate Framework, the company said.
