IntelliJ IDEA 2017.2 Help

Creating a Module with a GWT Facet

This feature is supported in the Ultimate edition only.

When you create a module with a dedicated GWT facet, IntelliJ IDEA configures the module and adds all the necessary libraries automatically.

To create a module with a GWT facet

Depending on the situation, you can choose to create a new project or to add a module to an existing project.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • If you are going to create a new project: click Create New Project on the Welcome screen or select File | New | Project.

      As a result, the New Project wizard opens.

    • If you are going to add a module to an existing project: open the project you want to add a module to, and select File | New | Module.

      As a result, the New Module wizard opens.

  2. On the first page of the wizard, in the left-hand pane, select Java Enterprise. In the right-hand part of the page, specify the JDK to be used and select the Java EE version to be supported.
  3. Under Additional Libraries and Frameworks, select the Google Web Toolkit check box.

    In the GWT SDK field, specify the GWT SDK location. (To download the latest version of the GWT SDK, use the Download GWT link.)

    If you want a sample GWT application to be created, select the Create sample application check box and specify the application name in the field underneath.

    Click Next.

  4. Specify the name and location settings. For more information, see Project Name and Location or Module Name and Location.

    Click Finish.
