From PyQt to Jython+JWt: Setting up the environment

Albert Cervera i Areny Apr 24, 2011

For those who don't know Wt;is an amazing C++ web development framework. There are thousands of frameworks out there but this is one of the very few that does actually take a different approach and makes web development really easy for those with no HTML or JavaScript knowledge while allowing them deliver buzz compatible applications.

In fact, one can use Ajax, HTML5 canvas, HTML5 History API, Comet or embedded Google Maps without worrying about Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) or Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) with zero knowledge of the technologies or their security risks because all of them are wrapped around an intuitive API. The API is specially intuitive for those with Qt knowledge because the API is deliverately similar to Qt's.
