View Full Version : cannot compile in debugging mode (-ea)
9 Dec 2011, 7:24 AM
If we compile our application in debugging mode (with -ea) the application no longer works. It compiles just fine, but the application fails to render.
Application with extGWT 2.2.5 and 3.0.0 beta 1 works with normal compile, fail with debugging (-ea). Also, when we remove extGWT completely we can then use -ea again.
I am curious if this is a known/expected issue with extGWT, if this is unique to us, and if anyone has information on this issue.

If the stack trace isn't helpful, try compiling with -style PRETTY so the method names and bodies are readable.

ya, I know it isn't for debugging, but assertions, but since GWT refers to it as debugging even in their description, I sometimes refer to it that way.
The issue we had is that we are using a GWT gradle script that (unknown to me) did -ea by default. After a variety of checks, I realized that it was adding -ea (you have to do debug=false in the gradle script to not call -ea). So, our solution is not to call -ea, since we don't want it in production anyway.
However, it made me wonder if this was a known limitation with extgwt, or something we should investigate. In any case, our work around is not to use -ea.
I had tried pretty mode, but didn't provide me any useful information at the time. However, I may go back and try it again.
