JavaEE Application Addon for Vaadin | Vaadin

Framework for building a GUI for JavaEE based Applications

The JavaEE Vaadin Addon helps you to build a JavaEE 6 based Vaadin Application fast.

It supports the following features:

  • CDI support through CDI-Utils (
  • Fixed standard layout of a web application with left side menu
  • Navigation through pages is done by sending CDI events
  • CRUD support for JPA entities (through JPA or other services):
  • Create a container by just subclassing JPAEntityContainer or ServiceContainer
  • Create a Table for all entities by just subclassing BasicEntityTable (you can set the visible columns you like)
  • Create a search Form by just subclassing BasicSearchForm and set the columns you want to include in the search
  • Create a edit form by just subsclasses BasicEditForm and set the columns you want to edit
  • Dependent entities are just accessed through their path (e.g. for the customers street "address.street")
  • Extended formatting
  • Extended Field creation (automatic field types derived from attribute types)

Tested and used with Hibernate 4 in JBoss 7.1. For an example on how to use it, have a look at

The JavaEE Addon is still very early Alpha and CDI is not quite working. A more stable version is expected in April '13.

The JavaEE Addon is compatible to Vaadin 7!
