Re: Partial super source? Possible?

GWT standard emulation is "just" super-source itself. You cannot "augment" it, but you can "shadow" it by providing your own super-source version of java.lang.String (copy from GWT and patch; and make sure it appears before GWT's emulation in the source path – i.e. IIRC make sure the <super-source> comes before any <include> that would bring This means you'll have to update your version whenever GWT updates its own.
But only ever do this for an application, never for a library!

If GWT emulates a Java class but not all methods, is it possible to provide a complement as a super source?

For example, can I provide a super source for String.format() while keeping other String methods emulated by GWT?
