I'm a bit confused about super dev mode. I've used it in the past, but I haven't used it in a while. I'm using maven and I've updated my project to use GWT 2.7.0. I run superdevmode with "mvn gwt:run-codeserver" and I run my webserver with "mvn cargo:run." I have the bookmarklets and I turn super dev mode on, which compiles the app.
When I change a source file, the change is not picked up by SDM to trigger the recompilation. I understood that this is supposed to happen. I can click on "dev mode on" and then "compile" and get the application to recompile, which works fine. I am using the gwt maven plugin.
I am going to try to digest all of the information on the gwt maven plugin website but there is a lot and it is complex especially with the multi-module dependency information. I'm not trying to hack the wall between modules (yet) all I want to do is have automatic recompilation for the GWT source files in the webapp module that contains my end point.
