How and where are front-end resources generated?

The frontend resources come through vaadin-spring-boot-starter which depends on vaadin-core that brings with it the org.webjars.bowergithub.vaadin jars which contain the frontend resources for the components themselves. Those are then served from the jar files on request by Vaadin.

If you would make a production build all those files would be copied, transpiled, bundled and minified during a step in the jar creation.
