Google Web Toolkit – rumored Morfik partnership

Google has just released its Ajax toolkit, called Google Web Toolkit:

“Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a Java software development framework that makes writing AJAX applications like Google Maps and Gmail easy for developers who don’t speak browser quirks as a second language.”

Also an interesting rumor is swirling around that Google either partnered with, or licensed technology from, WebOS company Morfik. Am digging to see what if any truth there is to this…

Update, May 18: Bret Taylor, Product Manager of Google Web Toolkit, has dispelled the rumor:

“Morfik seems like great technology, but Google Web Toolkit is in no way associated with Morfik or based on its technology. There have been some rumors circulating on this list that have been causing some confusion, and I wanted to clarify.
Bret Taylor Product Manager, Google Web Toolkit”
