GWT 1.6 Gchart.gif error

If your using Gchart in GWT 1.6 and encounter and error with gchart.gif simply use this code to fix the problem.

GChart.setBlankImageURL(GWT.getModuleBaseURL()+GChart.DEFAULT_BLANK_IMAGE_URL);

I got the solution from here: http://code.google.com/p/gchart/issues/detail?id=6

GWT 1.6 Server class 'jar file' could not be found solution

While migrating to 1.6 to take advantage of its new features I was face with lots of headache addressing a lot of warnings that are so ridiculous since I don't understand why. I have been Googling for answers to this problems but I found no answer.

Out of despair I tried to solve things on my own by reading the manual. What more can I say I'm just too lazy to read those stuff.

During the process of migration a warning that keeps on popping in even though I assign the java build path makes me want to scream. It looks something like this...



After 5 hours of trying to search for answer I finally convince myself that I have to read the GWT manual and rely on my instincts. Here's the solution...



First of all at the start of my development with my pet project I always make sure that all the jar files are being categorize according to folders to avoid confusion or easy removal in case I want to.

It's been a while since I post something informative in my blog still I am in the process of adjusting in my new environment after a month since I left my work place for five years. Most of the time I get side track by all kinds of distraction in my home town as compared to my old office never the less I manage to work on something cool and its the GChart.

I used to work with GWT-EXT flash chart and it's pretty decent however, I just think that a no plug-in policy to most browser is even better.

I'm working on my pet project SocialMe in which I decided to work with the bar and the line charts to provide a better presentation to customers who value their data more than ever.



Bar Charts




Line chart

Over all I am very much please with the result and I think I would like to keep this for the longest time on my project.

Internet connection

I finally got my internet connect at home after more than 3 weeks of waiting. I just hate the PLDT subscription they should stop promoting their internet DSL connection if they can not cope up with the demand of the consumers. I just hope our smart bro connection will last.

Ill be working with my project now.
