Adding google maps to Vaadin application

Hello guys,

I am completely new to Vaadin, but having taken a look at it, i think it will be very good for my project. However, as part of the system functionality, an interactive map (e.g. Google maps) needs to be displayed with which the user can interact. The map will also need to display locations etc.

what i am not sure about is whether it is possible to integrate Google maps into a vaadin application.

Any clarification on the above point will be appreciated.

Yes, it is possible to integrate the Google Maps. See the recent discussion here:
http://vaadin.com/forum/-/message_boards/message/95530

I recently developed a simple component that integrates Google Maps v2 with Vaadin 7:

It is not complete by any means, but it is a very good starting point to add your own functionalities.
