In order to use Google Maps API, you'll need to get an API key from Google Developers Console. The key is not normally needed when developing in localhost.

Altenatively you can use a client ID from Google Maps API for Work is supported.

Sample code

VerticalLayout layout = new VerticalLayout();
GoogleMap googleMap = new GoogleMap("apiKey", null, "english");
googleMap.setSizeFull();
googleMap.addMarker("DRAGGABLE: Paavo Nurmi Stadion", new LatLon(
        60.442423, 22.26044), true, "VAADIN/1377279006_stadium.png");
kakolaMarker = googleMap.addMarker("DRAGGABLE: Kakolan vankila",
        new LatLon(60.44291, 22.242415), true, null);
googleMap.addMarker("NOT DRAGGABLE: Iso-Heikkilä", new LatLon(
        60.450403, 22.230399), false, null);
googleMap.setMinZoom(4);
googleMap.setMaxZoom(16);
ArrayList<LatLon> points = new ArrayList<LatLon>();
points.add(new LatLon(60.484715, 21.923706));
points.add(new LatLon(60.446636, 21.941387));
points.add(new LatLon(60.422496, 21.99546));
points.add(new LatLon(60.427326, 22.06464));
points.add(new LatLon(60.446467, 22.064297));

GoogleMapPolygon overlay = new GoogleMapPolygon(points,
        "#ae1f1f", 0.8, "#194915", 0.5, 3);
map.addPolygonOverlay(overlay);
ArrayList<LatLon> points = new ArrayList<LatLon>();
points.add(new LatLon(60.448118, 22.253738));
points.add(new LatLon(60.455144, 22.24198));
points.add(new LatLon(60.460222, 22.211939));
points.add(new LatLon(60.488224, 22.174602));
points.add(new LatLon(60.486025, 22.169195));

GoogleMapPolyline overlay = new GoogleMapPolyline(
        points, "#d31717", 0.8, 10);
googleMap.addPolyline(overlay);
//due nature of server-client communication of Vaadin and architecture of this add-on, adding of Vaadin components can't be a part of the actual //GoogleMapInfoWindow class. Instead server-side widget of GoogleMap takes care of that
GoogleMapInfoWindow window = new GoogleMapInfoWindow();
googleMap.setInfoWindowContents(window, new Button("A Vaadin button!"));
googleMap.openInfoWindow(window);
