@sachinwebandcrafts It's kind of a non-sequiteur, since Java doesn't run in the browser. Scala's generally a better language than Java, but in particular Scala.js is an option for browser programming where Java really isn't. (But it's off-topic -- this is a jobs board.)

Fair point, although it's a rough comparison -- GWT abstracts the details a good deal more than SJS does. Haven't used GWT myself, but most folks I talk to seem to think that Scala.js works better.

GWT was quite painful, I used to use it a few years ago
