Care to explain downwote? For example, if we have changed to the situation in figure 2, then the onValueChange method determines that the value detail means it needs to call the doPhotoDetailsDisplay method. Far too many times when building GWT-based apps, we find ourselves slinging code wherever necessary to make the app work, and sometimes more importantly look good.
The actual actions do not change.
MVP Architecture for GWT Application
It may not be easy to tutorrial from a programmatical point view at the begining, but the theory is pretty clear. Click here to view the complete list of archived articles. There are two key things to note about this interface. Remember, test driven development is your friend. Figure 1 The three views shown by the photo application.
Presenters are where all the application logic sits mfp will have no UI components. Instead at least in our example appwe pass around events such as a contact being updated, the user switching to the edit view, or an RPC that deleted a user has successfully returned from the server.

Usually, unit tests are only applied to business logic and the model. It turns out that our implementation of the PhotoDetailsView interface is pretty simple. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
Migrating to Microservice Databases. To help explain these concepts we will use a simple Contacts application as an example.
