GWT developers (those who build GWT from source) may add their
gwt-user and gwt-dev projects to this project's class path in order to
use the built-from-source version of GWT instead of the version
specified in the POM.
Select the project in the Project explorer and select File > Properties
Select Java Build Path and click the Projects tab
Click Add..., select gwt-user and gwt-dev, and click OK
Still in the Java Build Path dialog, click the Order and Export tab
Move gwt-dev and gwt-user above Maven Dependencies
GWT developers can also use tools/scripts/ to push their
own GWT jars into their local maven repo.
-- Option B: Build from the command line with Maven --
If you prefer to work from the command line, you can use Maven to
build your project ( You will also need Java
1.7 JDK. Maven uses the supplied 'pom.xml' file which describes
exactly how to build your project. This file has been tested to work
against Maven 3.3.1. The following assumes 'mvn' is on your command
line path.
To run development mode use the Maven Plugin for GWT, first prepare
the webapp:
mvn war:exploded -Dgwt.skipCompilation=true
mvn gwt:devmode
To compile your project for deployment, just type 'mvn clean package'.
