For anyone trying to accomplish this task this is the thing that worked for me.

For example if you want to integrate the MenuBarExample from GXT demos then do this in Vaadin.

public class GXTMenuBarExample extends Composite implements IsWidget {

public GXTMenuBarExample(){


public Widget asWidget() {

...<place the code from the GXT demo widget here>


Then create the VMenuBarExample class that will extend GXTMenuBarExample and implement Paintable.

You will need also the server side class MenuBarExample that will extend AbstractComponent and so on.

This solution worked for me.
