Learning Vaadin 7 is out!

Hey everyone! No code nor rant for this week’s article but just very good news: Learning Vaadin 7 has been published!

Learning Vaadin 7 cover

This new edition of Learning Vaadin describes of course what is new in Vaadin 7 as well has changes from v6 to v7, but also introduces some great additional stuff:

  • Added a section about JavaEE integration: Servlet API, CDI and JPA
  • Added a section about the new connectore architecture: reworked GWT wrapping and added JavaScript wrapping
  • Moved and updated stuff from add-ons to core platform, the best example is Server Push
  • Added a section on a XML-based GUI feature with the Clara add-on - IMHO, this should be integrated into the core sooner or later
  • Upgraded versions of Gatein (for portals) and GlassFish (for OSGi)
  • Replaced Cloud Foundry PaaS with Jelastic PaaS as the latter is part of Vaadin offering
  • After having evaluated some Spring add-ons, completely dropped Spring section, as I found none of them satisfying. Stay tuned however as Spring integration is on the roadmap. Stay tuned on morevaadin.com when it’s launched, I’ll probably want to play with it.
  • Updated Maven integration - it’s not as easy as it was
  • And much much more!

You can get Learning Vaadin 7 through a variety of channels, including Packt, Amazon, Barnes & Nobles or Safari Books Online.
