Jens beat me to the reply, so I'll just answer one of the questions:--
how to update the app when either client side or server side code changes are made. Joe says to cycle tomcat...what does that mean?
Just CNTRL-C to kill the tomcat and then run mvn tomcat7:run-war to recompile and redeploy it
If you've just made server s I'm constantly going to the real code to figure out what has to change and then manually finding those same classes in Chromide changes, like modifying a backend service, then Maven will detect those changes and only recompile the backend Java. GWT will not recompile. On my dev machine, this means I can have the whole server recompiled and redeployed in about 15s.
There are other more advanced code-hot swapping tricks you can do to a running tomcat, but I've only tinkered with those.

It would be great to have an ability to drill from a Chrome JS debugger line into the source file in an IDE. Since Chrome already has the FQDN and line number, it would not be that complicated to do with a hook into the IDE. Sounds like a missing Chrome Extension, the sort of thing the IntelliJ boys would build if people made enough noise.
