Application Basics
Basics of creating an application using Flow.

Vaadin applications consist of one or more views and routing defines how URL addresses are mapped to those views. Navigating around the application works together with routing.
How to use components, create your own, or integrate 3rd party web components.
Data Binding
Show data in listing components and collect user input using form fields.
Element API
You can control the HTML DOM in the browser from the server-side using the Element API.
Drag and Drop
Drag and drop between components as well as between the UI and the operating system.
In addition to imperative Java code, you can build views declaratively using templates. The components in such a template can be bound directly to data items.
You can integrate Vaadin with many other Java application technologies, such as Spring, CDI, OSGi, and Karaf. You can also embed Vaadin applications/components in other applications or web pages.
Instructions how to configure your application and development environment.
