Actions are used to generate GWT elements such as entry points, remote services, etc. Each action suggests to configure GWT support if necessary and adds GWT libraries into module classpath.

...

New GWT Module

...

Creates GWT application template including:

  • directories
    • client
    • server
    • public
  • .gwt.xml module file
  • EntryPoint class
  • .html page
  • .css file

...

New GWT Entry Point

...

Creates GWT entry point template and performs the following operations:

  • generates a class derived from EntryPoint
  • adds a necessary <entry-point> element to the .gwt.xml module file

...

New GWT RemoteService

...

Creates GWT remote service template and performs the following operations:

  • generates an interface derived from RemoteService
  • creates an asynchronous version of  the interface
  • creates RemoteServiceServlet implementing the interface
  • adds necessary <servlet> element to the .gwt.xml module file

...

New GWT Serializable Class

...

Creates new class derived from IsSerializable with no-argument constructor.

...

New GWT Test Case

...

Works under test sources roots. Creates new class derived from GWTTestCase.

New GWT

...

UiBinder class and ui.xml file

Creates new *.ui.xml file with the corresponding Java class

References

"Go to declaration", "Find Usages", "Rename" actions, completion and highlighting works for GWT specific references in the following places:

  • parameters of methods UIObject.setStyleName, addStyleName, removeStyleName
  • parameter of RootPanel#get method
  • @Key annotation
  • <inherits> tag in .gwt.xml file
  • the return statement in "getModuleName" method in classes derived from GWTTestCase
  • parameter of ServiceDefTarget#setServiceEntryPoint method
  • @RemoteServiceRelativePath annotation
  • <meta> and <script> tags in GWT html file
  • tags and attributes in ui.xml files
  • @UiHandler annotation

Inspections

GWT Studio have inspections to report the following problems:

  • RemoteService-derived interface is not synchronized with its asyncronous version
  • Asynchronous version of RemoteService-derived interface is not synchronized with the original interface
  • Type of parameter or return type of method in RemoteService-derived interface is not serializable
  • GWT Remote service is not registered as a servlet in web.xml
  • Classes not from JRE emulation library (and not from client code of inherited modules) are used in client code
  • Class marked as serializable contains non-serializable fields
  • Style name used as parameter of "addStyleName" or "setStyleName" is not presented in CSS file
  • References to Java classes or methods from GWT JavaScript native methods cannot be resolved
  • Localizable interface is not synchronized with the corresponding .properties file
  • Interfaces derived from Constants contains methods with parameters
  • Deprecated @gwt.key JavaDoc tag usages
  • Deprecated @gwt.typeArgs JavaDoc tag usages
  • AsyncCallback class is used without type parameters
  • ServiceDefTarget.setServiceEntryPoint is used instead of @RemoteServiceRelativePath annotation
  • Usages of event listeners classes deprecated in GWT 1.6
  • Inconsistencies between fields with @UiField annotation and 'ui:field' attributes in ui.xml files
  • Wrong signatures of @UiHandler methods

Each inspection suggest a quick-fix to resolve the corresponding problem.

...

An output of GWT compiler can be automatically copied to an exploded directory or a war file of a Web Facet artifact on make. Just select the desired Web Facet in GWT Facet settingsinclude the GWT Compiler Output element in the artifact layout. An individual relative output path for each GWT module can be specified in GWT Facet settings as well.

...

Use "GWT configuration" to run/debug a GWT application in the hosted mode. Also "Run" action is available in the popup menu for GWT entry point classes and html files allowing to run a GWT application the hosted mode immediately. If AppEngine is used in the project GWT configuration allows to specify AppEngine Dev Server as a target server.
