I would like to use the org.apache.commons.validator.GenericValidator class in a view class of my GWT web app. I have read that I have to implicitely tell that I intend to use this external library. I thought adding the next line into my App.gwt.xml would work.

<inherits name='org.apache.commons.validator.GenericValidator'/>

I get the next error:

    Loading inherited module 'org.apache.commons.validator.GenericValidator'
       [ERROR] Unable to find 'org/apache/commons/validator/GenericValidator.gwt.xml' on your classpath; could be a typo, or maybe you forgot to include a classpath entry for source?
