Re: Building a GWT project in Eclipse 2019-03+ with Java 11.

Umm, ok. We have an extremely large and complex GWT development environment here, developed over a decade; God only knows what might be involved in rearchitecting it to not use the GWT SDK. It's complete news to me that there's any alternative; I don't quite know where to start in trying to make sense of this configuration.

But I have to go back to my original question: Wouldn't it be theoretically trivial to simply strip out the offending classes from gwt-dev.jar in the process of publishing a GWT 2.9.0? And is there seriously no way to tell the "Validating GWT components" process to stop harassing me?

I don't know what that means. As far as I've ever known, developing a GWT application in Eclipse implies installing the GWT Plugin for Eclipse and picking a GWT SDK.

Install the GWT Eclipse Plugin (; note that the SDKs are optional).
You're all set; the plugin will use the GWT dependencies from the Maven project.
