Forms for Vaadin

Forms aims to provide the developer with easier ways to create Vaadin Form objects and more control over the layout of the form.

Currently, this add-on only provides a single implementation named GridForm. This object is a Vaadin Form using a GridLayout to lay out the components. While a Vaadin Form can use a GridLayout already, there is no support for actually telling the form where to place the components nor is there the ability to have components span multiple rows and columns. GridForm attempts to solve this problem.

Inspiration for this add-on comes from the excellent JGoodies Forms library. The goal of this add-on is to provide the developer means for easily creating elegant forms and components using methods crafted by JGoodies Forms.
