GWT Plugin -- initial question

Using the new 5350 build and the GWT plugin. The documentation says that there should be a GWT module type, but I don't see it when I go to create a new project. Am I missing something obvious?

Look to 'New' menu action

Okay, I select "New Module" from the file menu. My options are: Java Module, Plugin Module, Java EE Application Module, Ejb Module, Web Module, and J2ME Module.

Should GWT be an option?

Look at TheServerSide there is an article with a flash demo of IDEA demonstrating the GWT support.

Okay, I've got it now -- I was expecting the module to be added via new module, when in fact it's added by creating a normal java module then using the new menu in the pop-up in the project pane.

Thanks

Noel,

Actually, this is still the open question whether there should be a GWT
module. In fact, since there are too many technologies around (GWT,
Spring, Struts, Hibernate, etc.) it doesn't make much sense to make a
special module type for each of these. Instead IDEA tries to help you in
adding the support for particular technology for a given module and
tries to recognize if you're using it.

The advantage of this approach is that we don't clutter the user
interface for new module creation. The drawback is also clear: decreased
awareness of technology support.
