Maven & eclipse plugin for devMode


I currently use maven on my project but I would like to work this more client side component.

I start with this wiki link In that way, I install eclipse plugin, change facet to include vaadin and try to create a launch configuration. When I click on apply, a pop up notice that I have to recompile widgetset and I have this error:

10 juil. 2012 14:44:37 com.vaadin.terminal.gwt.widgetsetutils.ClassPathExplorer getAvailableWidgetSets
INFO: Search took 46ms
Starting GWT compiler
10 juil. 2012 14:44:37$1 run
GRAVE: Widgetset compilation failed

Did I miss something? Or there is a method to do the same with maven?



For compiling the widgetset with Maven, see e.g.
the book
(also see the earlier parts of that chapter) or
Directory help page

I usually prefer to handle the widgetset (“mvn vaadin:update-widgetset”, “mvn gwt:compile”), starting servers (“mvn jetty:run”, …) etc. with Maven in a Maven project and with Eclipse in a non-Maven project. You can run the server target from Eclipse using “Debug As… → Maven …”. To run GWT debug mode, start “mvn gwt:run” (suitably configured for remote debugging - see Vaadin Maven archetypes) - but you need to connect to it with a remote debugger as the interesting process is not the one Maven first starts.

You can also use the new
if using GWT 2.5 - no need for browser plug-ins with it, but you need Google Chrome for source maps to work.
