Hi,

data-binding in the Vaadin context usually means mapping in-memory objects to UI controls. Read more here: https://vaadin.com/docs/-/part/framework/datamodel/datamodel-overview.html

The SqlContainer is indeed a Container and not a database. That is to say, it is an implementation of the Vaadin Container API. Read more about the SQL container here: https://vaadin.com/docs/-/part/framework/sqlcontainer/sqlcontainer-architecture.html

Hope this helps, 
Olli
