GWT compile failed -why?
What might the error below be telling me? Is it my improper usage of GXT? Might there be an bug someplace in gxt3 rc2? I see no errors in eclipse but when I try to compile the project, it fails.

I've never seen the message "Assimilating generated source" before - can you share the full build log and how you are building? Your .gwt.xml file might also prove informative.
As an example, the build log looks like this for the Test module in the examples project:
Compiling module com.sencha.gxt.examples.test.Test Validating newly compiled units Ignored 69 units with compilation errors in first pass. Compile with -strict or with -logLevel set to TRACE or DEBUG to see all errors. Compiling 6 permutations Compiling permutation 0... Compiling permutation 1... Compiling permutation 2... Compiling permutation 3... Compiling permutation 4... Compiling permutation 5... Compile of permutations succeeded Linking into /redacted/com.sencha.gxt/com.sencha.gxt.examples/target/gxt-examples-3.0.0-SNAPSHOT/test Link succeeded Compilation succeeded -- 79.550s
I'd guess from the messages in your log snippet that some other library is being used to generate sources for GWT that isn't part of GWT or GXT, but without more information it would be hard to say.

Thanks for your help. It's ok now.
It turns out that in refactoring some models to upgrade to GXT3 I introduced some errors that eclipse didn't flag but that choked the GWT compiler.
FWIW, the errors were an enum that the GWT compiler said wasn't visible and not having proper encapsulation (getters, setters) on some beans I'd redone after removing beanModel.
I set the compile log level to SPAM and text searched the log for "errors" since it is way to verbose to read through.
