Hi Dominic,

If you have a custom widget in your project, it should be in its own submodule, and not depend on the addons (unless specifically needed). Your UI module should then depend on the custom widget module and the addons you are using. This way the UI module will generate and compile the AppWidgetset with the correct dependencies. Take a look at the multimodule archetype for Vaadin 7.7.0, it has an example of this. The widgetset for the custom widget should not be touched, as it a dependency for the UI, but the UI module should not need a widgetset and annotation.
