Google App Script is based on JavaScript like syntax. It uses Google Web Toolkit (GWT) for creating and displaying elements of user interface. GWT is easy to learn, and completely abstracts the complexity of AJAX/HTML from the developer. It is a Cloud based debugger for debugging App Scripts in the browser. It can be used for creating tools to perform simple system administration tasks etc.

Limitations: Currently it doesn’t allow connection to internal (behind-the-firewall) corporate databases, which is key to building business apps. Lacks other connectivity like LDAP connectivity and limits the level to which GAS can be used in the enterprise.
