How can I use SuperDevMode with Maven
after reading a lot about SuperDevMode of gwt 2.5 I wanted to try it myself. I read https://vaadin.com/blog/-/blogs/vaadin-and-superdevmode and some other articles. As I understand I have to run the codeserver class. I checked out the gwt-maven-plugin repository but wasn't quite sure if there is already support for gwt2.5.
Has anybody managed to get the SuperDevMode working with maven?
Thanks to Thomas I got it working!! Here is a extract of my pom.
<resources> <resource> <directory> src/main/java </directory> </resource> </resources> <plugin> <groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId> <artifactId>exec-maven-plugin</artifactId> <version>1.2.1</version> <executions> <execution> <goals> <goal>java</goal> </goals> </execution> </executions> <configuration> <mainClass>com.google.gwt.dev.codeserver.CodeServer</mainClass> <arguments> <argument>com.myapp.Application</argument> </arguments> </configuration> </plugin>
Now I just have to run the goal: exec:java to start the codeserver.
In the meantime you can use it with the exec-maven-plugin.
This src repo: https://github.com/jbarop/gwt-maven-plugin/tree/gwt-2.5 looks like it supports GWT 2.5, with the last commit message being:
added mojo for running the code server
(disclaimer: I've not tried it myself, yet)
