can't really say right away what's the reason for the exception, but in general you should be able to call functions from the constructor. In order to debug this, please enable "pretty" or "detailed" compile mode for the widgetset. This should produce a much more meaningful exception message. To do this for the vaadin plugin, go to properties -> vaadin in your project and select the "javascript style" from the drop-down.

As for the version numbers, the client-side compiler simply adds its version number to the compiled widgetset and that is compared to the one that the server-side (vaadin-server jar) reports. I don't know why the check would fail with no reason. Please double-check that you don't have any other vaadin versions anywhere in your classpath.
