Thanks, that was the missing info I was looking for (just checked the maven-plugin help etc.)!!
What is the recommended setup nowadays when using Eclipse?
Is it recommended to use the Eclipse plugin(s) for GWT/GAE or is it better to run everything from the command line?

I certainly prefer to launch everything from Maven (whether on the command line or through the IDE; if only because developers can help one another whichever their IDE), but I don't think there's any "recommended setup", and the GWT Eclipse Plugin should (hopefully) work just as well. My personal take is: it must work without any IDE, and once that works, why both replicating things in an IDE where they most likely won't run the same and need to be debugged again.

For GAE, I really can't tell.
Also, IIRC, GWT Eclipse Plugin has a feature to launch both the server and GWT codeserver in a single click.
(I must say I haven't used Eclipse in a while, and never actually used the GWT Eclipse Plugin)
