It's nice to see the pendulum swing back to static analysis of your code. If you want static code analysis, GWT is very stable and all the issues worked out, which there will be in a 1.0 release. GWT's UIBinder is one 2.0 feature that cleans up your code quite a bit while keeping static code analysis. The compiler will error when Java code refers to UIBinder's HTML markup that doesn't exist.

When a piece of data come in, store it everywhere you need it. This might be aggregated tables (if you don't use indexed views) or whatever you may need. If you have background processes like ETL, you'll use a lot of your hardware for processing at the expense of queries.

Avoid ETL. You've got one shot to store your data everywhere.

We don't really understand it, so we'll give it to the programmers.
