Vaadin currently offers the following Maven archetypes for different kinds of projects:
This is a single-module project for simple applications. It is good for quick demos and trying out Vaadin. It is also useful when you are experienced with Vaadin and want to build all the aspects of the application yourself.
A complete Vaadin application development setup. It features separate production and development profiles.
An example CRUD web application using multi-module project setup.
A multi-module project for a new Vaadin add-on. It has two modules: one for the add-on and another for a demo application.
A mobile development starter project using Vaadin TouchKit. See "Vaadin TouchKit". Notice that this archetype uses the AGPL-licensed version of TouchKit, which requires that your project must also be licensed under the AGPL license.
