JSF Integration | Vaadin

JSF component to render Vaadin UIs in Facelets-based JSF applications

JSF Integration is a Vaadin 7 add-on that allows you to render Vaadin UIs in JSF pages.


  1. Implement a new Vaadin UI by extending com.vaadin.ui.UI.

  2. Configure a new VaadinServlet in your web.xml or by using the @WebServletannotation.

  3. Make sure you can access the Vaadin UI when running your application. This includes ignoring the URL mapped to the VaadinServlet in other Servlets or Filters (see the appfuse-vaadin-example application which integrates Spring, Hibernate, JSF, and Vaadin).

  4. In your XHTML file, add the XML namespace and use the ui tag to point to the URL mapped to the VaadinServlet:

    <html ... xmlns:vaadin="http://vaadin.com/jsf">

    <vaadin:ui url="/myui"/>

  5. Optionally specify a custom widgetset and a theme:

    <vaadin:ui url="/myui" widgetset="com.example.MyUiWidgetset" theme="mytheme"/>
