comment How to handle fired listeners exceptions
Sorry i hate the terms observable and observer as they share too many similar letters and at a glance for me open for error. I prefer to terms for both ends that are very different and not merely different by some suffix. Thnx for the last thought.

comment How to handle fired listeners exceptions
I was hoping for a simpler answer rather than introducing another abstraction. By introducing a PM the question then becomes, do i create impls for each of the possible strategies and which should be the default.

You did not actually recommend which approach to take. The q is not about >how< to solve the problem its more of >waht< makes sense most of the time.

Are there any real cases where it makes sense that a listener can "abort" the current process which is why it threw the ex in the first place ?

comment What are you thoughts on GWT?
In a word tooling. No one has written a real comparable editor for javascript compared to the many available for java.

comment What are you thoughts on GWT?
@Josh My guess is, your adding small animations etc rather than writing a large complex. Theres a reason why scripting langauges are limited to small tasks and statically typed languages are used for larger tasks.
