Getting current time in GWT

The Calendar class isn't supported in GWT because the Java cannot be compiled into JavaScript.

So for now, you need to use the deprecated Date class in Java:

  import java.util.Date;
  Date rightNow= new Date();
  int hour= rightNow.getHours();
  int min=rightNow.getMinutes();

I am still trying to find a better supported way to solve this problem, but for now, deprecated code seems to be the best solution available.
