Swing components in Vaddin

Hey all,
I wanted to ask whether i could use Swing components (such as JOptionPane) in Vaadin or not???

The short answer is no - a Vaadin application is running on a server and the UI is displayed on the browser whereas Swing components are for locally running applications.

I have looked into this exact issue. And while it is technically feasible to make a workable solution ( implement a Swing GraphicsDriver and all accompanying factories etc ) , it is much simpler to simply port a swing application to vaadin.

( And I found Vaadin before my 1st prototype Swing over web application worked :slight_smile: ).
