Super Dev Mode for Vaadin 6 | Vaadin

Recompile your widget set is less than ten seconds!


How to use:

  • Add this add-on jar to your build path
  • Download the GWT trunk build and add to your build path. Remove any old GWT jar references (the Vaadin plug-in for Eclipse automatically adds these)
  • Recompile the widget set as always. This will fail if you use an old version of GWT.
  • Start the code server (Run )
  • Add ?superdevmode to your application URL

To do remote debugging, for instance from a phone or tablet, add ?superdevmode=ip:port to the url, e.g. ?superdevmode=myothermachine:9876

Note that Tomcat seems to conflict with the CodeServer so if you have Tomcat on your code server classpath, be sure that the GWT trunk jars are before the Tomcat jars on the classpath.

Note also that there is no need to run CodeServer in debug mode. It will recompile the widgetset when you refresh the browser, not when you modify your Java code.

Note that Vaadin 7.0.0.alpha3 contains this add-on built-in.
