I'm wondering what the current stat of drag and drop is in GWT. So far it looks like GWT-DND is the only major one out there. http://code.google.com/p/gwt-dnd/ It looks roughly pieced together and not necessarily the easiest to use. Any thoughts?

As you probably know 2.3 introduced DnD, it is easy to use and very straightforward, sadly even in 2.4 it does not work in Opera. :(

This is because Opera doesn't support it: http://caniuse.com/dragndrop

Thanks!! I actually didn't know this! This will help a ton! Do you know if there have been any objects created for it? Like a rearrangeable list?

If your concern is rearranging lists using drag and drop, this can be
done by gwt-dnd package. I've used it to rearrange a list of
disclosure panels. The rearrangement is saved in the Database via
RequestBuilder.
One of the best things I found regarding how to make composite objects
(like Disclosure panel) draggable, is by inserting components in a
FocusPanel.

GWTQuery has good support for DnD too (including dragging out of and dropping into Cell widgets: CellList, etc.)

(disclaimer: I never, ever used GWTQuery)
