Vaadin+Spring boot in J2EE


trying to figure out how to run Vaadin with spring boot in wildfly8.2. I see in logs that spring framework is initialized but in the main UI class none of my beans are injected! Please can you tell me whether it is even possible and tested or spring boot integration is supported with embedded tomcat/jetty only?

INFO  [io.undertow.servlet]
 (MSC service thread 1-7) Initializing Spring embedded WebApplicationContext

My start class:

public class AdminBootApplication extends SpringBootServletInitializer {
    public static void main(String[] args) {, args);

//    @Override
//    protected SpringApplicationBuilder configure(SpringApplicationBuilder application) {
//        return application.sources(AdminBootApplication.class);
//    }


and my UI class

public class AdminUI extends UI implements LocalizationDE {

    private String projectVersion;

    public void init(VaadinRequest request) {
    //project version NULL !


If I use jetty/tomcat it works really good, but deployment to wildfly does not use spring.
