On this page you can find zip and jar packages for Vaadin pre-releases, older releases, as well as individual packages of the currently latest Vaadin release.

The preferred way to use Vaadin is either through IDE plugin or Maven and you normally you don't need to download any files separately, but just the dependency management.


Using pre-releases with Maven

Vaadin pre-releases are located in separate Maven repository. You need to add the following repository specification into either in in settings.xml or in pom.xml

    <name>Vaadin Pre-releases</name>

Using archetypes with pre-releases

You can generate a test project using the standard Vaadin archetypes. However, you need to make sure you have the pre-releases repositories properly configured for the generated project.

To generate a project using 7.6 beta1 use :

mvn archetype:generate  \
    -DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin  \
    -DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application  \
    -DarchetypeRepository=  \
In addition to above reposotory URL, the generated project pom.xml needs to have the Maven plugin repository specified also:


        <name>Vaadin Pre-releases</name>
