Hi Ivan and Markus,
you're very welcome ;).
@Markus: yes, having the RAP deps in Maven Central was one of the big enablers for this!
About linking to the GitHub repo, sure, be my guest! I can also improve the README and or the code, as this was just a quick example. I'm not sure what you mean by "from our pages". In case you are referring to the official Eclipse RAP pages, I think this could find a mention in the developer's guide. It's specific to RWT standalone, so there could be a section about it on the following page: https://www.eclipse.org/rap/developers-guide/devguide.php?topic=rwt-standalone.html&version=3.20
In fact, the demo project provides a complete working example and a starting point for a Spring Boot + RWT standalone setup. If you think it's worth, it could even receive it's own section under "Building Applications" in the guide.
With my project I have really reached a point where RWT just fits like a glove on top of the Spring Boot ecosystem. If a project does not rely on the workbench or OSGi, this is imho a really nice production-ready combination. You get the trusty RWT API and functionality and also all the nice things that Spring Boot and Gradle provide. Building, running and creating the deploy artefact, all with one command. Gradle wrapper makes it very portable (you can also use the Maven wrapper). CD/CI compatible out of the box. Use your favourite Maven dependencies like you're used to to. No more launch configs, features, war products. IDE agnostic. A real productivity booster with modern development ergonomics, I'm very happy with it :).
