Re: gwt-maven-archetypes multiple project setup

That is great news! I hope I can get your much appreciated assistance to help me figure out what I am doing wrong, because as of right now it isn't working for me. I am sure there is something I haven't configured properly so let me show you what I have.

I am using the modular-webapp for the project with gwt-app. Similarly I wanted to have a library project that is divided by client, shared, and server projects. 

So my library set up is as follows:

Each one of those projects uses
















Of course the module name is different for the shared and server projects. So when I maven install the parent "library-core" project it will compile all 3 sub projects into their respective jars.

Now I created a "base" project that depends on the library. This project was created with the modular-webapp archetype. In my base-client I depend on the library-core-client and my base-server depends on the library-core-server.

For example in the base-client I have this:








So when I run superdev like this:

gwt:codeserver -pl *-client -am

tomcat7:run -pl *-server -am -Denv=dev

it all works, the dependencies play nice together, the only problem is if I change code in the library-core-client and refresh the browser, it does not detect the change.

Am I missing something or is there a better way to structure the projects so they will work correctly?

Thank you so much,

Will the gwt-lib projects work with incremental compile or will I have to stop the dev mode, rebuild the library, and run again?

One of the goals of net.ltgt.gwt.maven:gwt-maven-plugin was to properly support multimodule projects, and "properly support" includes not having to stop and restart devmode/codeserver when making changes in any module of the reactor (and without hacks and/or profiles in your POMs).
