Upgrading Vaadin version in Eclipse

Perhaps something has changed, or maybe I just don’t know what I’m doing :slight_smile:

I have Vaadin 7.1.6 running in Eclipse (Kepler). I see that Vaadin 7.1.9 is available, but when I select
→ Properties → Vaadin

I get a window showing 7.1.6 as the current version, but that entry is grayed out - I can’t ask it to upgrade to 7.1.9.

What is the proper way to do that upgrade? I can download the 7.1.9 zip file, but where do I extract it, and how do I tell my projects to use it?



You can change the Vaadin version number at the top of the ivy.xml file in the project (or in your pom.xml if it is a Maven project rather than an Ivy project). Both of these automatically load the required files using the dependency management system.
