About to embark on something ambitiuos (I suspect), I figured I would detail through some blog posts how I go.
I am building an application (secret squirrel until it releases) that I want Scala to be it's core language.
The GUI I want in Java (it just works so well), Eclipse is just the default IDE for me, Maven my absolute must build tool and then all the goodness of Spring and Hibernate as usual.
My first challenge (beyond learning Scala) is to get Eclipse, Maven and Scala to co-operate. The project will have Java source and Scala Source mixed in.
GWT, as per my other standard projects will be in it's own module anyway.
So.. here goes. This is just the "I am trying this" post. I'll let you all know how I go.
