I already showed my gratitude towards the ease of rapid development using the jetty-maven-plugin in an earlier post. But now i am even more surprised....
I was working on some new Dojo demos for our courses. Looking for an easy lab environment for these new demos i was experimenting with the jetty-maven-plugin and was amazed by its ease of integrating dojo in your maven/jetty project. I found it here.
Just by adding the following
<dependency> <groupId>org.dojotoolkit</groupId> <artifactId>dojo-war</artifactId> <version>1.3.2</version> <type>war</type> </dependency>
It will overlay your web application; just run jetty:run and access http://localhost:8080/dojo
It did not stop there! When i imported the project in IntelliJ it recognized it instantly!
And i was able to use code completion, jump to source code, etc ...
