I am likely missing a configuration option or have a wrong value.
I started with GWT 2.0 and the Google Eclipse plugin in Eclipse 3.5.1 and generated the base "greeting" project.
Then I reorganized the source tree and created pom.xml files based on the GWT-maven-plugin documentation on Multi-Project Setup.
Then I ran "mvn clean install idea:idea" to generate the IPR files.
IDEA 9.0 loaded the project (upconverting the version), detects the GWT and web facets which I "Accept". I set the path to the GWT directory to the installed gwt-2.0.0 directory.
I created an IntelliJ "GWT Configuration" to launch the application. When I run the application, the GWT Development Mode dialog initializes. I click the "Launch Default Browser" button and a browser window opens with:
HTTP ERROR: 404
Powered by Jetty://
The MyApp.html and MyApp.css are in both the generated webapp-1.0-SNAPSHOT directory and .war file. However, if I trim the URL in the browser from http://localhost:8888/MyApp.html?gwt.codesvr=10.27.1.11:9997 to the http://localhost:8888/ , I can navigate the files served up by the Jetty server. The .html and .css files I can see in the webapp-1.0-SNAPSHOT directory and .war file are not shown. So it makes sense that a 404 is returned. But why are the files that are in the build directory and artifact not part of the server being executed from the IntelliJ Run? What piece of magic configuration am I missing? Thank you.
