From the abstract:

Get introduced to the Vaadin framework by one of its core developers. The Vaadin provides a desktop-like programming model on the server for creating Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) in plain Java – without the need for HTML, XML, plug-ins or JavaScript.

In this session, Joonas lays out the key concepts of the server-side RIA development model and compares it to client-side RIA. To demonstrate the use of framework, an example application is developed during the session step-by-step. The presentation is concluded with pointers on how to start developing your own applications with Apache-licensed Vaadin-framework.

You’ll learn:

  • How to create a desktop like web application in Java
  • Difference between page oriented, client-side RIA and server-side RIA architectures
  • How Vaadin can be extended with Google Web Toolkit
