Trying out Vaadin

Trying out Vaadin

Spent some time today trying Vaadin

In general it’s a GWT-based solution which makes work with GWT more comfortable. It’s not another GWT component library like ExtGWT or SmartGWT. It dives deeper into the layer up to the JPA layer.

There’s a book available for free which can be used to study Vaadin at http://vaadin.com/download/current/docs/book-of-vaadin.pdf

So the first thing I liked so much – was debug console. You can call it by specifying “?debug” parameter at the end


It’s way more usable than the default GWT one since it displays you the tree of components created during some actions.
