GWT Java Project Wizard

  In order to use GWT components, you need to make sure that all of the appropriate GWT jar files are on your classpath. The GWT Java Project wizard creates a standard Java project which has all of the needed libraries added. The wizard can be selected from the drop down wizard menu or from the Eclipse New or New Project wizards.

To use the wizard, enter the project name and specify where the project should be located. Optionally create a GWT Module during initial project creation.

  • A GWT Module may be created using the GWT Module wizard
  • A module descriptor file will be created
  • Client, public and server packages will be created
  • Optionally create an EntryPoint file and public resources
  • Optionally configure the project to use a third-party toolkit like GWT-Ext or Ext GWT (GXT).


The wizard creates a Java project and generates content for the .classpath file like the following.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <classpathentry kind="src" path="src"/>
<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER"/>
kind="var" path="GWT_HOME/gwt-user.jar"/>
<classpathentry kind="output" path="bin"/>

The wizard creates the project with all of the necessary configuration and resource files.
