In my project, I'm using JSON and RequestBuilder for my services. In order to test the client-side, I'd like to load JSON files from the filesystem and populate my
data model to ensure my JSON parsing is working correctly. To do this, I've created a JsonReaderServlet that subclasses GWTShellServlet and operates as I'd like it to.
I've gotten it to work with help from the following tutorial:http://development.lombardi.com/?p=15
However, when I run the gwt-maven-plugin, I get the following warning:
[WARNING] You should not declare gwt-dev as a project dependency. This may introduce complex dependency conflicts
If it's not recommended that I include gwt-dev in my project as a dependency, are there any suggestions on how to create a Servlet that reads JSON files from the
filesystem for testing purposes? AFAIK, this is the only way to do it since I'm using overlay types, which require execution using GWTTestCase.
