RichTextArea not contained in Widgetset Issue

Hi! Thank you in advance for the help. I’m still fairly new to Vaadin, so bear with me.

I’ve recently tried to insert a RichTextArea in a panel of the sample Quicktickets Dashboard source. When I compile and run, the panel where I expect to see my RichTextArea states the following:

"Widgetset ‘com.myProj.MyAppWidgetset’ does not contain implementation for com.vaadin.ui.RichTextArea. Check its component connector’s @Connect mapping, widgetsets GWT module description file and re-compile your widgetset. In case you have downloaded a vaadin add-on package, you might want to refer to add-on instructions.


As a test I have inserted a plain TextArea instead of the RichTextArea and have no such issues. Any guidance here would be wonderful. I expected RichTextArea to work “out-of-the-box”, but I’m not finding that it does… Thanks again for the help.

and try to compile it, I receive a compilation error stating:

GWT Module com.vaadin.WidgetSet not found in project sources or resources.

Sounds like a library is missing. Check that you have
in your project’s dependencies.

If you’re using Maven, you should have something like the following block inside of your pom.xml:


If you’re using Ivy, in ivy.xml:
