An irritation for me when using SuperDevMode is the prompt that appears when the application starts before the code server is ready.  I have patched my copy of gwt-dev to remove this prompt and keep the code cycling until the code server starts.  What I'd ideally like to do is to have this as an option that can be configured from gwt.properties.  If this option is already present somewhere and I haven't noticed it, I'd like to hear.  If the option isn't already present and this fix would be of interest to others, I'll put some more work in and submit it as new code for GWT.

Not sure what you mean. But I know that there was a commit that changed DevMode to wait until SuperDevMode CodeServer and Jetty/Tomcat have been fully started before continuing. Obviously that does not prevent you from visiting the URL of your app before DevMode has been fully started.

That sounds like what I have been after.  I can't see that feature in the 2.7.0 download - is it in the 2.8 builds?

I would say so as I use it and never had an issue with any prompts.

Actually no. It is in 2.7 [1], and has since been made synchronous [2] (so you possibly wait a little longer).

But if you're using CodeServer rather than DevMode, you have to wait before loading the page; that code is only about enabling the "Launch Default Browser" and "Copy to Clipboard" buttons in the DevMode UI.

Ah I see, well I start SDM through IntelliJ which uses the DevMode class (with -noserver) and the browser is launched when everything is ready.

This is the dialog I mean:

One question remains unanswered: how are you launching SDM / loading the page that you're facing this dialog box?

IIRC, the reason it doesn't automatically reloads is to avoid hiding the fact that the CodeServer isn't running at all (and you'd wait forever). I'd suggest deep-diving in the commit history and review comments to find out.

I'm using the Netbeans GWT plugin.
