Errai is a GWT-based framework for building rich web applications using next-generation web technologies. Built on-top of ErraiBus, the framework provides a unified federation and RPC infrastructure with true, uniform, asynchronous messaging across the client and server.

Errai requires a JDK version 6 or higher and depends on Apache Maven to build and run the examples, and for leveraging the quickstart utilities.

Launching maven the first time

Please note, that when launching maven the first time on your machine, it will fetch all dependencies from a central repository. This may take a while, because it includes downloading large binaries like GWT SDK. However, subsequent builds are not required to go through this step and will be much faster.
