GWT application settings are configured in the module configuration file, including what packages to include and what class to load on entry of the app.
- [Narrator] At this point, we have discussed…how the compiled Java script…is loaded into the host page,…and where the user will first encounter…the GWT application.…But how is that Java script created in the first place?…This is where we roll up our sleeves…and get our developer hands dirty.…Let's return to the root package…where the module configuration file is located…and open it.…This file is found on the Java class path…and is the first file read at compilation.…It contains configurations for the GWT application itself…like determining what other modules to inherit,…with these inherit tags,…what packages to translate with these source tags,…as well as the all-important module entry point,…where your application begins executing.…
This application will begin with the class…My_First_App, located in the client package.…There are other advanced configuration settings…but those are better suited for a more advanced lesson…covering topics like GWT linkers.…Like the host page, the Samba configuration file…is well-commented and off to some great explanations…
