Re: Multiple GWT modules in one Maven module

Thanks for the replies.

I already took a look at the issue on the plugin's github: https://github.com/tbroyer/gwt-maven-plugin/issues/57
Sadly, this was closed and recently labeled with a wontfix, hence me asking for help here :)

In my project I have many modules. What I did is simple create a gwt-lib maven module per GWT module. Those modules served different purposes so it made sense to split them in smaller artifacts.

In some cases I moved the code around so that I join multiple modules into one big module instead.

Another solution you could try is to have one module that inherits all the other modules. But I don't like that approach because it means you have manually maintain that gwt.xml file and those other gwt.xml files as well, while with the gwt-lib approach the gwt maven plugin will take care of adding the inherits tags automatically (if you have the gwt-lib in your dependency section).

I was hoping to (for the time being) avoid this exact approach. I realize this is the way to go, but I'm also expected to maintain full compatibility with our old ant build (until the maven build is as good as ready).

Should I take a look at the legacy Mojo maven plugin, or can I expect to come across the same hurdles with that one given my project layout?
