The last step in the process of building a GWT application is running and testing the compiled output as that is what will be deployed in production server. Running in production mode is simple, especially if there is no server-code, as Kyle demonstrates
- [Instructor] Once we have compiled our project,…we can very easily test the final code…that we'll use in production…by either deploying the contents of the war folder,…in particular the currency converter sub folder…onto a web server and never getting to the host page…or we could simply open the host page…in our favorite browser…and that's what I'm gong to do in a second.…That option will work just fine for us…because we have no server side running code…but if your project did include code…to be run on the server in either the server…or the shared packages,…any of those calls would generate an error.…
But you can still test the clients I code this way.…Let's navigate to our file browser,…on a Mac it's the Finder, and find our workspace…and then locate that war directory.…Here it is and here is the host file.…I'm going to open the host file in Chrome to begin with…just to validate that it's working.…We were running super dev mode in the Chrome browser…and it worked then but at this point we're looking…at the production code, the generated compiled code…
In this course, learn how to build high-performance, browser-based apps using GWT. Kyle Gower-Winter introduces you to GWT, explaining the benefits of using this toolkit to build dynamic web pages. To help you practice what you learn, he shows how to build a simple foreign exchange rate application. Plus, Kyle covers managing AJAX events on the client, handling UI action events, debugging code, and more.
