I'm tring to develop a custom module for Active Workspace. The problem is that I have to rebuild the "war" file quite often, I use gwtcompile.cmd. Every single rebuild takes several minutes, which is quite slow for development.
So I'm looking for a way to do incremental compilation. It was not desribed in Configuration/Customization guides. Is the process described anywhere?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok, I got it working. Just for the record.
I downloaded latest Eclipse Neon2, installed GWT plugin in it. Then created a fresh project in Eclipse with name ThinClient, checked "sample code" checkbox just to have a directory structure.
Then I removed all internals of that project and copied javac/tc-aw-framework folder content. Then I added all jars to the build path from folders repo/war and repo/gwt.
Then I removed everything from the war folder and copied the contents of the out/war folder.
After that, I was able to run the Active Workspace from Eclipse in Super dev mode.
I can add all my custom modules to that Eclipse project, it seems I cannot use symlinks there. The Eclipse picks up all changes in my modules and quickly recompiles them if I reload the page.
