The timeout is not a promise nor does it act like a promise because a 
promise is something that your sum() method would actually return to the 
caller so that the caller can react to the promise outcome by registering 
callbacks to it. In your example your sum() method returns nothing and you 
schedule a function that returns a value that nobody will ever receive.

If you would make your sum() method return a real promise then you have to 
either write the Promise in GWT as well using JsInterop or use elemental2 
library and cast it into the promise of elemental2. Then you can wait for 
the promise to resolve to get the result.
