A Healthy Fall

in the Forest


Mushrooms. You can walk for hours in the forest looking for them, not finding a single one. But suddenly you find one. And there's another right next to it. Looking through the moss, you find a cluster. And then you realize you're in the middle of a basket-full of funnel chanterelles.

Have you looked around recently?


Vaadin Loves JavaScriptComponents


We are starting a series of articles in our Vaadin blog, where we publish one Vaadin 7 related article every week until Vaadin 7 is released. Our first article is about JavaScript components.

In short, JavaScript components are an alternative to GWT components. The developer writes pure JavaScript into a separate file which is deployed alongside the Vaadin application. Vaadin provides a convenient API to communicate between the server and client, both on the server and client sides. You can read the details in our blog post.


TestBench 3.0 Released

TestBench 3 is the newest instalment of our UI testing suite. While there are a lot of smaller improvements, some of the most prominent include:

  • An upgrade to Selenium 2, from Selenium 1
  • Tests can no now recorded as Java code, no need for clunky HTML files
  • You can test for response times, to keep your UI fast and responsive.
  • Mouse and keyboard are now truly simulated, instead of faking JavaScript events.

If you have a license for TestBench 2 or are subscribing to Pro Account, you may upgrade to TestBench 3 for free. Please visit our TestBench 3 webpage for more information, including brand new video tutorials.


Our Forums are Finally Fixed

The forums have been broken for a shamefully long time: It has been unable to send email whenever a message thread gets updated for a long time. The bug is now fixed, and email notifications are sent out once again. This took us way too long a time, and we're terribly sorry about it.

We hope the forums will serve you well once again.
