yesterday, we merged https://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/75705/
Engine query & action result classes.
We will follow this up with renaming "VdcReturnValueBase" to
"ActionReturnValue" and doing similar renames to existing
The reason for finalizing those result classes is to avoid us implementing
a GWT custom field serializer for each such subclass, therefore limiting
our exposure to GWT RPC specifics when transferring objects between client
On a side note, we also upgraded GWT 2.8.0 to 2.8.1 which fixes a GWT
compiler bug we had to work around: https://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/77264/
Unfortunately, we've found a bug  in GWT 2.8.1 that causes the GWT
debugger (classic dev mode - using Java IDE) to crash right upon startup.
The ^^ bug is currently marked as "wontfix" because classic dev mode was
deprecated in GWT 2.8.0 release. For us, classic dev mode remains the only
reliable way to debug our GWT code (even though you have to use a very old
Firefox or Chrome, but it works).
For now, we're going to revert to GWT 2.8.0 so that frontend development
experience isn't affected.
