Problem

Is it possible to host a GWT-compiled web application in NodeJS?

I like NodeJS however there are lots of work already made with GWT for my projects.

Cheers.

Solution

On the client side, as @riley-lark said.

You can also use GWT code on the server-side on NodeJS; see https://github.com/cretz/gwt-node and http://code.google.com/p/gwt-exporter/

Yes. GWT is a client-side technology and does not need to interact with your server at all. It is possible to send arbitrary requests to any server and process the feedback.

You won't be able to use GWT-RPC or RequestFactory.
