As with most Vaadin add-ons, you can install Vaadin Charts as a Maven or Ivy dependency in your project, or from an installation package. For general instructions on installing add-ons, please see "Using Vaadin Add-ons".
Vaadin Charts 4 requires Vaadin 8.
Using Vaadin Charts requires a license key, which you must install before compiling the widget set. The widget set must be compiled after setting up the dependency or library JARs.
For instructions on installing a license key, see "Installing Commercial Vaadin Add-on License".
The Maven dependency for Vaadin Charts is as follows:
<dependency> <groupId>com.vaadin</groupId> <artifactId>vaadin-charts</artifactId> <version>4.0.5</version> </dependency>
You also need to define the Vaadin add-ons repository if not already defined:
<repository> <id>vaadin-addons</id> <url>https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-addons</url> </repository>
The Ivy dependency, to be defined in ivy.xml, would be as follows:
<dependency org="com.vaadin" name="vaadin-charts" rev="4.0.5" />
It is generally recommended to use a fixed version number, but you can also use latest.release to get the latest release.
