Two other files in the generated directory in Figure 2 jump out at us: the GwtAjax-Compile and GwtAjax-shell scripts. You can run these scripts from the command line, or dynamically from an Ant file. If your application was called XXX, then applicationCreator would call these files XXX-Compile and XXX-Shell.
An easy way to compile your code is to enter GwtAjax-Compile at the command line with no options. Figure 3 displays the description of the GwtAjax-Compile's various options such as -out or -style.
For example, if you type:
XXX-Compile -style PRETTY -out myapp
After compiling, what does the output directory contain? Figure 4 shows the contents of the www/com.parkerriver.gwt.intro.GwtAjax directory.
