Vaadin 7, IBM Portal Server and portlet event

Hi all,

We are trying to have standard jsr-286 portlet event firing from vaadin 7 portlet, to integrate in IBM Portal Server.

From our findings, vaadin UI events (e.g.: button click listener) doesn’t fire the process action method in portlet, so it is never available to any piece of code the ActionRequest/ActionResponse to use to send the event.

As I haven’t found any reference about vaadin 7 and jsr-286 portlet event out of liferay, I’m asking:

  • are jsr-286 events supported by vaadin?
  • if yes, how do you trigger these events from vaadin? (any example is greatly appreciated)

Thanks in advance,
