helloword-gwt quickstart demonstrates the use of CDI 1.0 and JAX-RS in Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1 or later with a Google Web Toolkit (GWT) front-end client.
You can test the REST endpoint at the URL http://localhost:8080/jboss-helloworld-gwt/hello/json/David
The application this project produces is designed to be run on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) 6.1 or later with the Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit (WFK) 2.7.
All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or later, Maven 3.0 or later.
If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.
The following shows the command line to start the server with the default profile:
For Linux: EAP_HOME/bin/standalone.sh For Windows: EAP_HOME\bin\standalone.bat
NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Build and Deploy the Quickstarts for complete instructions and additional options.
Type this command to build and deploy the archive:
mvn clean package jboss-as:deploy
target/jboss-helloworld-gwt.warto the running instance of the server.
The application will be running at the following URL: http://localhost:8080/jboss-helloworld-gwt/.
When you are finished testing, type this command to undeploy the archive:
Super Dev Mode allows GWT developers to quickly recompile their code and see the results in a browser. If you plan to modify this demo, we recommend you start the application in Super Dev Mode so you don't have to repackage the entire application every time you change it. It also allows developers to use a debugger to inspect a running GWT application.
Execute the following command:
This quickstart provides Arquillian functional tests as well. They are located in the functional-tests/ subdirectory under the root directory of this quickstart. Functional tests verify that your application behaves correctly from the user's point of view. The tests open a browser instance, simulate clicking around the page as a normal user would do, and then close the browser instance.
To run these tests, you must build the main project as described above.
Build the quickstart WAR using the following command:
mvn clean package
If you have a running instance of the JBoss EAP server, as described above, run the remote tests by typing the following command:
mvn clean verify -Parq-jbossas-remote
If you prefer to run the functional tests using managed instance of the JBoss EAP server, meaning the tests will start the server for you, type fhe following command:
mvn clean verify -Parq-jbossas-managed
You can also start the server and deploy the quickstarts or run the Arquillian tests from Eclipse using JBoss tools. For more information, see Use JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse to Run the Quickstarts
If you want to debug the source code or look at the Javadocs of any library in the project, run either of the following commands to pull them into your local repository. The IDE should then detect them.
mvn dependency:sources mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=javadoc
