PostHeaderIcon GWT in noserver mode with Tomcat or WebLogic

Abstract

You would like to work on the client side of your GWT application, without building and deploying the Jetty server. Or, in the same way, you need test some server features available in WebLogic but not in Jetty, such as the EJB.
GWT 2.0 documentation, at the segment How do I use my own server in hosted mode instead of GWT’s built-in Jetty instance? is not precise at all on the 3rd step: it simply states:

“change the URL at the end of the argument list to match the URL you recorded in step #1.”

Process

  • Let’s assume your WAR is deployed on http://distantMachine:8080/myApplication. The servlet container may be Tomcat or WebLogic, it does not matter
  • In Eclipse, go in “Run Configuration...“. Duplicate your current and classic GWT application configuration.
  • Go in Server , uncheck “Run built-in server“.
  • In Arguments tab, write the following line:
    -noserver -remoteUI "${gwt_remote_ui_server_port}:${unique_id}" -logLevel INFO -war C:\eclipse\workspace\myApplication\src\main\webapp\lalou.jonathan.web.gwt.MyApplication -startupUrl http://distantMachine:8080/myApplication lalou.jonathan.web.gwt.MyApplication
  • Run
  • The application is available at the following address:
    http://distantMachine:8080/muyApplication/?gwt.codesvr=127.0.0.1:9997
