Basil Bourque: Vaadin is a bear to get ramped up. You must know Java, get Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers installed, get the Vaadin Plug-in installed, obtain a servlet engine and web server such as Apache Tomcat or Mortbay Jetty, and then integrate that web server with Eclipse. By comparison, you can make a single download and get an app running with Real Studio within minutes.

I've been using Vaadin for a couple years now without Eclipse. :)

Yes, you need to know something about Java and Servlets, and you need a Servlet container, but beyond that all you need is Vaadin. Vaadin makes it easy for people to start writing web apps, but if you don't know something about how Java web apps work, you're eventually going to run into trouble. I would suggest learning a bit about Java EE before starting to use any web framework.
