I've been reading this thread and I am facing the same problem: trying to customize the GWT scaffold generated by ROO is becoming frustrating.
Has anyone successfully customized the scaffold in any way, even if it is for small changes? is there a way to preserve the changes made in the view files (view.java and ui.xml) besides deleting the annotations in the entities i want to customize?
I am going to keep trying and share if I find something.

We are hard at work on making the GWT addon more Roo like for 1.1.1. You can follow progress here and I will also update this thread with any news.

I am also having serious problem trying to customize what Roo + GWT has generated. But instead of customizing the generated gui, I am trying to create a brand new gui while leveraging at least the applicationRequest.
I am new to GWT and Roo but have experience with Spring & Hibernate, but that doesn't help too much. So after a boat load of GWT, Gin, Guice tutorial and documentations, I finally understand enough what those are for and able to re-use some of the generated requests. But to my surprise, there doesn't seems to be a way to "extend" it.
For example, I would expect Roo would pick up the dynamic finder I added to the entity and generate backing interfaces in the <entity>Request interface for the new dynamic finder. But it didn't. None of the docs mention anything similar and scanning the forum posts both from GWT and Roo doesn't help.
I was tempted to finally create my own request interface under the client.managed.request package and hope that it will get picked up and included in the ApplicationRequestionFactory...... but Roo quickily squashed my hope by auto removing the file (very slick, I will give u that)...
Anyway, anybody knows any trick or as it stands right now there is no way to customize anything at all?
And just now I opened a domain class and did an organize-import, and boom, Roo went crazy modifying sets of files and the whole thing is out of wack. Turns out if I have a Date field in the domain class and my import is java.util.* instead of list the Date import individually, Roo assumes I have my own Date class and generate a different import in the rest of the files and causes compilation error........ is this qualified as a bug?
Sorry for the long post, just kinda frustrated like everyone else while seeing not too much help from the Roo/GWT team.....
Will appreciate any insight that can save some of my hairs.
