Google Web ToolkitGoogle Web Toolkit (GWT) is, as you would expect, a development toolkit that is used to create and optimize web apps. GWT is the meat behind some of the tools that you are likely to be familiar with from Google, such as Google Wave and AdWords. Like the other tools we have discussed, GWT is open source and free to use.
The GWT is installed as a plugin for Eclipse, and is installed through a web-based process--once you have installed Eclipse, you just visit the Google Plugin for Eclipse 3.6 page and following the prompts.
MooTools also has a demo area where they demonstrate various aspects of MooTools, including Basis, Events, Effects, Requests and Plugins. Like GWT, there is plenty of documentation on the site, as well as a lively developer community.
