My current company has a GWT UI that we're maintaining and extending to add new features. I previously have worked on two other GWT UI's that we built from scratch at other clients. My experience is that GWT is great for building new UI's, but it's not particularly maintainable or extensible. I went through the ordeal of trying to add a single menu item to the existing UI yesterday, and it took about 3 hours of config file modifications, code generation, and working with the GWT compiler to figure out just what all was needed to get a new item in the existing UI. (resource files, UI binders, CSS with names that bind to names in Java files, etc...)
More recent versions of GWT might solve some of these issues- our UI is built on some version of GWT 1.
