Installing GWT and Spring Roo
Ok, the way to go is:
- Install STS. It will come with Maven, Spring roo and Spring core.
- nstall the GWT extension for STS.
A detailed guide is in here:
A quick note, if you use the last stable release of STS, you will get a bunch of warnings because it uses GWT 2.1 and the current GWT version is 2.4. You can either ignore the warnings (most of them are because there was a package refactory in GWT to accomodate for Android development. These are changes only in the layout of the package, not in its functionality or API) or you can download Roo 1.2.0.M1 (if you download it, place in in your springsource folder, next to the 1.1.5 Spring Roo -or instead of it- and update its reference into STS -Right click on Project -> Properties -> Spring -> Spring Roo -> Set the Roo 1.2.0.M1 folder path-). If you do the second one, you will get some errors when the Maven project is imported into Eclipse, to solve them do the following:
- Add the GWT library to the project (Right click on Project -> Properties -> Java Build Path -> Library -> Add Library -> Google Web Toolkit) .
- Add the item detailed in this post to the pom file.
Let me know if this worked out for you of if you need more detailed information.
