Re: Eclipse Version

NetBeans has a very good Maven support. So you can do everything with Maven, also in NetBeans. With Maven you are IDE independent:
Introduction to Maven:
After you know how to work with Maven...
Maven plugin for GWT: 
It is worth it for everyone to learn Maven to build you project, so you are IDE independent.

Also you can take a look at this presentation to understand the anatomy of GWT web apps:

If you have done the Maven stuffs you can use the Project Generator which Frank showed above. The important part IMHO is to understand what Maven gives you and how you can use Maven to build your project first.

Hope this helps.

hi Lofi,

we are also having same problem. we are using: 
1. 2.6.1 GWT version.
2. netbeans as a GUI with GWT plug in (which helps in debugging Source (SDBG))

but now, we want to switch to newer or latest version of GWT 2.9.0 but there is no plugin for netbeans yet.
Instead there is a eclipse plugin, so we don't  have any option, we just have to move on eclipse (provide the training to team and understanding the eclipse functionality etc.).

reading your answer seems that we can use maven for all things. But as we always worked on netbeans we don't know how can we configure, develop, debug etc. the GWT project in maven.

can you please help us or share any document which can help us understanding the GWT project configuring in MAVEN.

I always use pure Maven and if you are familiar with Spring Boot, I've developed similar mechanism GWT Boot (at the moment without the Initializr, but I'm planning to do that).

... with all examples available just like Spring Boot... All still ini SNAPSHOT, so if you are working behind a firewall in your company you need to add the Sonatype Snapshot:

        <name>Sonatype Snapshots</name> 

For me it is always easier just to work with Maven and I could choose my IDE (Eclipse, IntelliJ or VSC for Java).

Hope this helps.

I haven't updated to the latest Eclipse yet, however, does the GWT plugin not work anymore?
