Serializing/deserializing top level component in the UI


Is there anyway to serialize the top level component and all children of the UI and then reload it in another Vaadin session? I know tomcat 7.x does this for any active sessions just before it stops (when you bring it down). The reason I want to do this is because I have a very complicated UI and it would just be easier to simply reload the serialized UI as apposed to trying to rebuild it based on saved data. This is just for a demo, this wouldn’t be prod code. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Steve,

I am not quite sure if I correctly understand what you are after, but this article by Petter
might be a good starting point for you:
