Subject Re: How to deploy bundles?
Date Sat, 22 Jan 2011 12:02:02 GMT
Hello Dennis,

Like Angelo said, we're transitioning to the new UI at the moment. The move was mostly motivated
by the fact that by choosing Vaadin over GWT we can modularize the UI. That might sound a
bit strange if you know that Vaadin builds on GWT, but basically GWT compiles all your UI
logic to client side javascript, where Vaadin builds on the GWT controls and adds logic that
stays on the server. GWT can only compile all code in one go, which is why it can't be modularized,
as there can be no "contributions" to an existing UI, whereas Vaadin is just Java code running
on the server, so we can easily extend it with services (using the whiteboard pattern for
example to create extension points).

Greetings, Marcel

an error. I will grab a screen shot next time I see it.

experimental new UI.
