Re: SuperDevMode recompiles RPC since they are unchanged

IMHO it is preferable to launch SuperDevMode and your server (be it jetty or anything else) separately so you can restart them separately. We do that at work and only rarely restart SuperDevMode.

I wholeheartedly agree, but even when using the embedded Jetty container in DevMode, you can restart the webapp without restarting DevMode.
Generally restarting SuperDevMode in GWT 2.8.x works better as GWT 2.8.x stores a cache on disk that can be reused between restarts. Also GWT 2.8.x SuperDevMode only recompiles code that has been modified when you reload the browser. GWT 2.7. always recompiles the whole app when using the bookmarklets to recompile your code. So generally GWT 2.8.x SuperDevMode should work faster in terms of recompilation.

Hey Jens, nobody should use the bookmarklets in 2.7 either ;-)
But yes, as I said in, 2.8 (or HEAD-SNAPSHOT) should work better and would be the basis for a fix/improvement if ever needed, so the first thing to do is (always) updating to the latest version (and trying HEAD-SNAPSHOT too if you can).
