To start using Vaadin 7.1.0 beta1, create your project with the latest stable version as described on this page. If you are using an IDE plug-in, you get to choose which version of Vaadin you want to use. This is the easiest way.
Maven / pom.xml: Change version in the <vaadin.version> tag to 7.1.0.beta1.
Ivy / ivy.xml: Change the version value in the <!ENTITY> declaration to 7.1.0.beta1.

There are a number of ways you can get Vaadin into your project. We recommend using Maven, but we have a plug-in for Eclipse that handles everything for you as well. Or you can simply download the All-in-One archive file, and manage the files manually.
The easiest way of getting Vaadin 7 is through Maven. Create a new Vaadin project from an archetype with:
mvn archetype:generate \ -DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin \ -DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application \ -DarchetypeVersion=LATEST \ -Dpackaging=war
Learn more about different Maven archetypes and dependencies at vaadin.com/maven.
We recommend that users of the Eclipse IDE should use the Vaadin Plugin for Eclipse. It is the all-in-one solution for developing Vaadin applications:
- Create and run a Vaadin web application in 5 minutes
- Wizards to guide you: New project, widget, and theme
- Help and API documentation
If you like to manage all your libraries manually, we provide you with an archive file that includes everything you need for Vaadin development.
Read the README.TXT textfile inside the archive to learn more about where the various files are needed.
