Re: Multiple GWT modules in one Maven module

I tried both the command line (mvn gwt:compile) and via the IntelliJ Maven plugin.
Indeed, binding the execution to the prepare-package phase and running mvn gwt:compile@compile-common works, and I'm glad it does.

If I'm reading what you're saying correctly, this means that there is no way to invoke all the plugin executions with a simple command?
I personally expected mvn gwt:compile to invoke everything it needs (so everything that comes earlier in it's lifecycle, including the executions I bound to the prepare-package phase),
or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks again!

That's what I figured, but it seems to be a required property (The parameters 'moduleName' for goal net.ltgt.gwt.maven:gwt-maven-plugin:1.0-rc-7:compile are missing or invalid, when invoking gwt:compile).

How are you invoking gwt:compile? If on the command-line, then the execution ID matters, and only one such execution will match (the one with <id>default-cli</id>). But starting with Maven 3.3.1 you can specify the execution id on the command-line too: "mvn gwt:compile@compile-common gwt:compile@compile-foo".

I defined my executions as per your example:

etc.. but it appears the executions aren't triggered (or is this an effect of the missing moduleName under configuration?). It seems I have much to learn still.

Rule of thumb: if a goal is (meant to be) bound to a lifecycle phase (such as gwt:compile which is bound by default to the prepare-package phase; see https://tbroyer.github.io/gwt-maven-plugin/compile-mojo.html; but not gwt:devmode or gwt:codeserver for example), then invoke the lifecycle phase, not the goal.
Another rule of thumb: only ever invoke the lifecycle phases "package" and "verify" (and "install" and "deploy" when dealing with libraries, to share them with other projects / people). If you want to skip tests, pass -DskipTests, if you want to skip the compilation of tests too then pass -Dmaven.test.skip.
If you know what you're doing, then feel free to break those rules; if you know what you're doing.

Also, have a look at Gradle rather than Maven, if that's a possibility for your project(s).
