Composite Component development approach

Hi List,

I’m new to Vaadin, so it may happen I ask some stupid questions :grin:

Currently I’m going to develop my first application using Vaadin. I used Maven to do the project setup, my Java services are waiting for beeing used.

Now I’d really like to create my own composite components. Using the Eclipse plugin it is not hard to create the Java class, but how can I test a component isolated? Do I have to create a new project for the component only with an own application in which I provide some testdata?

Any hint is appreciated,
Christoph
