Hi - I've been using the last version of WindowBuilder prior to this Eclipse project (in Eclipse Mars) which has been limiting me to GWT 1.6.1. I don't see a lot of current details on the project about it, only that it was "just commissioned" (which has been there for many months). I'm updating my dev environment, and would like to update my WindowBuilder and GWT versions, but if I download the latest WindowBuilder, what version of GWT does it support? Will it run on Windows Eclipse Oxygen.1a Release (4.7.1a)? Is highest java version supported by WindowBuilder plugin correspondent with the GWT version in use (its supported version of java)? Any details here are appreciated. Thanks!

Regarding this, I think I still need to know what the compatibilities are, but here is what I am seeing, when trying to make the best of it with what I have in my dev environment now:
I went ahead and installed the latest WindowBuilder for Windows X64 (version 1.9.0) into my Eclipse Oxygen 1A, and have installed the GWT 3.0 Eclipse plugin also, and downloaded and added GWT 2.8.2 sdk to it. I have GWT plugin set in preferences to use GWT 2.8.2 now. JAVA_HOME env var points to jdk 9.0.1, but my Eclipse project is set to use 1.8.0_151. I have the project classpath also pointing to M2_REPO/javax/servlet/javax.servlet-api/3.1.0/javax.servlet-api-3.1.0.jar, and have no other project errors (it compiles cleanly in both Eclipse and with maven, and there are no issues with it in Eclipse "Problems" window.) My project source is a simple test app which was generated by using the following command with maven 3.5.2:

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=net.ltgt.gwt.archetypes -DarchetypeVersion=LATEST -DarchetypeArtifactId=modular-webapp

I am getting the following error when opening the EntryPoint class:
Unknown GUI toolkit

The parser parsed the compilation unit, but can't identify any GUI toolkit, so WindowBuilder can't display any GUI to edit. This can be caused by one of the following reasons:
•This class is not an editable UI class and contains no UI components.
•WindowBuilder does not recognize the GUI toolkit or library used in this class.
•WindowBuilder does not understand this GUI type/pattern in a supported GUI toolkit.
•Problems exist with the classpath. For example, the compilation unit uses SWT classes, but the SWT/JFace libraries are not included into the classpath.
