GWT installation path best practice.

When multiple developers work on the same project, whatdo you handle the GWT installation path ?

- Do you include the entire GWT installation in the project, so it can be referred relatively ?

- Or do all developers need to install in the same dir ? (And what about linux vs windows then ?)

- Or something in between ?

Personally, i think a JDK like handling where each intellij instance has it own set of GWT installation paths, and a project just refers to a named one of these would be the optimal way of handling this.
But in lack of this.. how do I do ?

Any recommendations appreciated.

You can use the "Settings | Path Variables" page to set some variable
for the location of the libraries. Then it will be possible for each
developer to have the libraries in a different directory.

Personally I prefer using Maven to handle all dependencies.

I worked on a personal application with GWT in IntelliJ and the way I did it was to check in the needed files:
    - only needed .jar and .dll / .so files (no help or .bat files as those are unnecessary)
    - both the windows and the linux versions in different dirs because I needed to work both on linux and windows
    - I manually modified the path to GWT when switching between windows and linux
