Can Vaadin run without Spring Boot?

Does Vaadin need to run on Spring Boot or does it have to run on app server like Tomcat, Payara, etc? Thanks.

Yes, it works without spring (boot).

Can you point me to example pls?

or a tutorial? I was looking on the Vaadin website and just saw Spring Boot stuff. Thanks!

https://vaadin.com/hello-world-starters you can find here multiple hello world examples - most of the stuff from the spring tutorial (except the spring stuff) is applicable here as well if you know Java, you can easily work from there

Thanks. It seems like the Plain Java one runs on Jetty so another container but lighter one. Thanks!

It works on tomcat etc., you just build the war in production mode and deploy it :wink:

ah okay, still new to this side of web Java but thanks for the tip!
