Amazon AMI Cloner using SmartGWT and Grails

As what I have posted earlier this month about the Amazon EC2 AMI cloner/migrator. Where it can launch and bundle a new AMI to another EC2 account, here comes it’s basic web interface :).

I’m no expert in Ajax and just luckily found Gooogle Web Toolkit(GWT) and finally the SmartGWT for this application. See sample screen shots using SmartGWT application. A Grails service works to fetch the AMI list, using the same cloner codes. The service generates a page with JSON string which can easily be use for SmartGWT datasource. I’ve learned that for me it’s much easier to get the web interface using SmartGWT and build the services inside grails. So far, I’m having fun and while keeping myself on the edge of these technologies.
