You will need to write your own code that will open the new view. It is up to you how you do this. You can, for example, remove the old view and add the new view. Or you could switch pages in a TabPanel. There are many ways to do this.
Do you have any specific suggestions on how this should be supported? Do you think that GWT Designer should provide more high level support for developing Web applications and provide some assistance for specific kinds of applications?
lynas wrote:2. What is the preferred persistance layer? Is it possible to use Hibernate for that?
Hibernate is on the sever side, so in theory it is not related to GWT Designer. However again, if you think that we should add some support
in this area, describe what you're looking for. We could possibly add such support in the future.

No, there is no standard validation or help support in GWT.
lynas wrote:4. How can I integrate frameworks like JFreeChart or Flash components?
JFreeChart is a server side component, so you can use RemoteServices to ask server part to create the PNG/GIF for you and display it in GWT.
You can use an HTML widget for displaying any HTML code, including references to Flash. You can also write your own custom widget that wraps displaying Flash in a simple interface.
lynas wrote:5. Does GWT provide support for table sorting or pagination?
There are several extended Table widgets for GWT available in various open source libraries.
lynas wrote:6. Is there a tree tabel widget for GWT available?
No. The new version of GWT (1.2) will support any widget as an item of a Tree, so you might be able to build a tree table based on that.

Yes. See the GWT Designer Deployment Docs
