I am not very familiar with Maven in Eclipse. I use Eclipse 4.6. Once I run "Debug as… → Maven", I see there are a lot of choices such as

Maven build...
Maven clean
Maven generate-sources

Maven test.

I cannot figure it out how. Can you give me step-to-step instruction?

I don't use Eclipse (any longer), but IIRC, use "Maven build…" here, then in the window that opens you can give your -pl and -am (in the "goals" field, and define the 'env' system property with value 'dev' (or maybe just pass -Denv=dev) (note: that "book" might be outdated)
I am very familiar with how to debug GWT application not using Maven.

You're not trying to debug a "GWT application" here actually, but a "web application". GWT is an implementation detail of your servlets as far as the server-side is concerned.
