For anyone interested in looking further into using Vaadin and Clojure there’s an article I wrote some time ago:


I’ll update the example to the latest TouchKit.

To become a bit more inspired about Clojure, I can recommend the two-part video “Clojure for Java developers” on youtube

After that there are plenty more lectures from Rich Hickey, the creator of Clojure, at infoq.com. And of course, clojure.org is the main site for Clojure.

Hope you enjoyed the show! :)

And here is some further information if you got interested about Groovy:

The example project can be found here https://hub.jazz.net/project/johndevs/vaadin-jpa-app-groovy

Website: https://grails.org
Vaadin Grails Plugin: http://grails.org/plugin/vaadin
"Vaadin on Rails" book by Ondrej Kvasnovsky http://ondrej-kvasnovsky.gitbooks.io/vaadin-on-grails

Website: http://www.gradle.org
Vaadin Gradle Plugin: https://github.com/johndevs/gradle-vaadin-plugin

My favourite resource for good examples of what Groovy is capable of is mrhaki's blog "Groovy Goodness" http://mrhaki.blogspot.fi/search/label/Groovy%3AGoodness . He has also released the book "Groovy Goodness Notebook" (https://leanpub.com/groovy-goodness-notebook) which even has more "hidden" features and Groovy gems. Strongly recommended!
