gwt:mergewebxml

Full name:

org.codehaus.mojo:gwt-maven-plugin:2.7.0-rc1:mergewebxml

Description:

Merges GWT servlet elements into deployment descriptor (and non GWT servlets into shell).

If you use scanRemoteServiceRelativePathAnnotation you must bind this mojo to at least compile phase Because the classpath scanner need to see compile classes

Attributes:

  • Requires a Maven project to be executed.
  • Requires dependency resolution of artifacts in scope: compile.
  • The goal is thread-safe and supports parallel builds.
  • Binds by default to the lifecycle phase: process-resources.

Required Parameters

Name Type Since Description
generateDirectory File - Folder where generated-source will be created (automatically added to compile classpath).
Default value is: ${project.build.directory}/generated-sources/gwt.
webXml File - Source web.xml deployment descriptor that is used for GWT shell and for deployment WAR to "merge" servlet entries.
Default value is: ${basedir}/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml.

Optional Parameters

Name Type Since Description
compileSourcesArtifacts String[] - Artifacts to be included as source-jars in GWTCompiler Classpath. Removes the restriction that source code must be bundled inside of the final JAR when dealing with external utility libraries not designed exclusivelly for GWT. The plugin will download the source.jar if necessary. This option is a workaround to avoid packaging sources inside the same JAR when splitting and application into modules. A smaller JAR can then be used on server classpath and distributed without sources (that may not be desirable).
deploy File 2.3.0-1 The directory into which deployable but not servable output files will be written (defaults to 'WEB-INF/deploy' under the webappDirectory directory/jar, and may be the same as the extra directory/jar)
extraJvmArgs String - Extra JVM arguments that are passed to the GWT-Maven generated scripts (for compiler, shell, etc - typically use -Xmx512m here, or -XstartOnFirstThread, etc).

Can be set from command line using '-Dgwt.extraJvmArgs=...', defaults to setting max Heap size to be large enough for most GWT use cases.


Default value is: -Xmx512m.
User property is: gwt.extraJvmArgs.
gen File - Location on filesystem where GWT will write generated content for review (-gen option to GWT Compiler).

Can be set from command line using '-Dgwt.gen=...'


Default value is: ${project.build.directory}/.generated.
User property is: gwt.gen.
genParam boolean 2.5.0-rc1 Whether to add -gen parameter to the compiler command line

Can be set from command line using '-Dgwt.genParam=false'. Defaults to 'true' for backwards compatibility.


Default value is: true.
User property is: gwt.genParam.
gwtSdkFirstInClasspath boolean 2.1.0-1 Deprecated. tweak your dependencies and/or split your project with a client-only module
Default value is: false.
User property is: gwt.gwtSdkFirstInClasspath.
inplace boolean - Select the place where GWT application is built. In inplace mode, the warSourceDirectory is used to match the same use case of the war:inplace http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-war-plugin/inplace-mojo.html goal.
Default value is: false.
User property is: gwt.inplace.
jvm String 1.1 Option to specify the jvm (or path to the java executable) to use with the forking scripts. For the default, the jvm will be the same as the one used to run Maven.
User property is: gwt.jvm.
logLevel String - GWT logging level (-logLevel ERROR, WARN, INFO, TRACE, DEBUG, SPAM, or ALL).

Can be set from command line using '-Dgwt.logLevel=...'


Default value is: INFO.
User property is: gwt.logLevel.
mergedWebXml File - Location on filesystem where merged web.xml will be created. The maven-war-plugin must be configured to use this path as webXml parameter
Default value is: ${project.build.directory}/web.xml.
module String - A single GWT module. Shortcut for <modules> or option to specify a single module from command line
User property is: gwt.module.
modulePathPrefix String - Prefix to prepend to module names inside webappDirectory or in URLs in DevMode.

Could also be seen as a suffix to webappDirectory.


User property is: gwt.modulePathPrefix.
modules String[] - The project GWT modules. If not set, the plugin will scan the project for .gwt.xml files.
packageNamePerModule Map 2.1.0-1 (no description)
persistentunitcache Boolean 2.5.0-rc1 Whether to use the persistent unit cache or not.

Can be set from command line using '-Dgwt.persistentunitcache=...'


User property is: gwt.persistentunitcache.
persistentunitcachedir File 2.5.0-rc1 The directory where the persistent unit cache will be created if enabled.

Can be set from command line using '-Dgwt.persistentunitcachedir=...'


User property is: gwt.persistentunitcachedir.
scanRemoteServiceRelativePathAnnotation boolean 2.1.0-1 (no description)
Default value is: false.
style String - GWT JavaScript compiler output style (-style OBF[USCATED], PRETTY, or DETAILED).

Can be set from command line using '-Dgwt.style=...'


Default value is: OBF.
User property is: gwt.style.
timeOut int - Forked process execution timeOut. Usefull to avoid maven to hang in continuous integration server.
warSourceDirectory File - Location of the web application static resources (same as maven-war-plugin parameter)
Default value is: ${basedir}/src/main/webapp.
webXmlServletPathAsIs boolean - Specifies whether or not to add the module name as a prefix to the servlet path when merging web.xml. If you set this to false the exact path from the GWT module will be used, nothing else will be prepended.
Default value is: false.
webappDirectory File - Location on filesystem where GWT will write output files (-out option to GWTCompiler).
Default value is: ${project.build.directory}/${project.build.finalName}.
User property is: gwt.war.
