Building Vaadin Applications With Pure Scala

A session at JDD 2012

Friday 26th October, 2012

3:00pm to 3:50pm (WMT)

Vaadin is a server-side Java framework for building rich internet applications. Since it’s a Java framework, any JVM language can be used to create applications with Vaadin. Since each language has its own characteristics, adding some convenience methods can enable taking full advantage of the language with Vaadin. This presentation introduces Scaladin, a wrapper library that provides a pure Scala API for Vaadin.

Compared to other Scala web frameworks Scaladin provides a different approach for building web applications: It’s possible to create rich internet applications with a component-based server-side API without HTML templates, taglibs, XML configuration or even JavaScript. The presentation introduces Scaladin and shows key concepts and ideas behind it. For demonstration purposes, a web application is written on stage. The step-by-step tutorial uses a full Scala tool chain to build the application.
