Support for right to left languages

The Vaadin component set supports now RTL writing systems. Follow the documentation on how to make sure your UI code is compatible with RTL and how to implement localization in your app. The bookstore example project has an rtl-demo branch for a full localization example.

import com.vaadin.flow.component.Direction;
import com.vaadin.flow.component.UI;
import com.vaadin.flow.server.VaadinSession;

VaadinSession.getCurrent().setLocale(new Locale("fa", "IR"));
