Marcond Marchi: Insteresting, sometimes very specific questions arise before the project takes full shape. What kind of question would be good to submit to support instead of the forum? It comes to my mind one I'm facing, which is:

Q: To create custom components with complex javascript, are there any downsides on using AbstractJavaScriptComponent instead of the traditional GWT-centric way?

Is this a "support question" or a "forum question"?


Hi Marcond,

That is a good question. I would say that both are applicable in some cases. Especially in questions like you posted, there is an overlap. Sometimes it is difficult to get community answers for very special questions or atleast it takes long, since people answer here on their spare time. The purpose of the Forum is to be a peer support. It is a bit similar thing that with topics of health, there are forums available for those kinds of questions as well. And you may post question in there, and still also visit a GP / doctor for an annother answer too. Also, in some cases your application specific details may be too confidential to be disclosed in public forum.
