Getting going with Vaadin 7


I am looking for a easy way to get going with Vaadin 7 Alpha before Beta.

Is there some sort of ColorPicker archetype ?
(like /wiki/-/wiki/Main/Using%20Vaadin%20with%20Maven)

If not can I ask for one please.

We haven’t gotten to updating the Maven archetypes yet. The best we can offer right now is the wiki tutorials (
) and the “New Vaadin Project” and “New Vaadin Widget” wizards in the experimental Eclipse plugin (

Answering my own question :slight_smile:

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin -DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application -DarchetypeVersion=7.0.0.beta1 -Dpackaging=war

Then just compile and run with:

mvn package jetty:run
