do I need gwt-servlet and gwt-user library, in my pom.xml ?
It depends what you do with your pom.xml, i.e. how you use the dependencies.
I was uploading my gwt app on app engine, I got the error
saying gwt-user jar is too big, and I need to split it.
I decided to comment out gwt-user, and I didn't get any error or warning,
which made me wonder what dependencies I need to include in my build ?
and is there a library that need to be present in development mode, that should be excluded in final build ?
In brief, you need gwt-dev and gwt-user to build your client-side code, and you need gwt-servlet (and only gwt-servlet) on the server-side (and only if you use GWT-RPC and/or RequestFactory).
This means that if your mix client-side and server-side code in your Maven module, you need to have gwt-user as <scope>provided</scope> (it's indeed provided by the gwt-maven-plugin) and gwt-servlet as <scope>runtime</scope> (gwt-dev is provided by the gwt-maven-plugin, so you don't need an explicit dependency, unless you have to write a generator or linker, but then beware of conflicts with some libraries; you'd better split your app into a client-side only and server-side modules)--
