gwt phonegap is an open source project, that Daniel Kurka started back in 2009. It enables GWT applications to work together with phonegap and create great mobile apps. Because GWT is currently lagging some features (widgets, touch support and animations) to develop mobile web apps he also started m-gwt. mgwt brings great looking widgets and very performant animations to gwt applications.

Daniel Kurka is part of the GWT Steering Committee, that drives the future development of the open source project GWT.
