Re: gwt-maven-plugin: how can I chnage the Jetty port?

Where does this go? Which pom.xml? Sorry, I'm looking at returning to Maven because of the lack of Gradle support and their dizzying rate of updates.

So, I've generated a modular-webapp, I tried


in the top-level pom.xm. Port 8888 is open, but I still get 

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.eclipse.jetty:jetty-maven-plugin:9.4.8.v20171121:run (default-cli) on project web8-server: Failure: Address already in use

I've tried other places, but I'm out of ideas.

I would like to change the Jetty server port from (default) 8888 to e.g. 4200 when running mvn gwt:devmode.
Any pointers on how to configure that?

You'd use devmodeArgs to pass the -port argument:
