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 fastest way to use Vaadin is either through an IDE plugin or Maven. To check out the fastest ways to get started see vaadin.com/framework/get-started
Using pre-releases with Maven
<repositories> <!-- ... -->
<repository> <id>vaadin-prereleases</id> <name>Vaadin Pre-releases</name> <url>https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-prereleases</url> </repository> </repositories>
<pluginRepositories> <!-- ... -->
<pluginRepository> <id>vaadin-prereleases</id> <name>Vaadin Pre-releases</name> <url>https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-prereleases</url> </pluginRepository> </pluginRepositories>
Using pre-releases with Ivy
Vaadin pre-releases are located in separate Maven repository. You need to update repository specification into either in ivysettings.xml or in ivy.xml. After this the pre-release version numbers work the normal way in your project.
<resolvers> <chain name="default"> <!-- ... --> <ibiblio name="vaadin-prereleases" usepoms="true" m2compatible="true" root="https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-prereleases" /> </chain> </resolvers>
Using archetypes with pre-releasesYou 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 8.0.0.rc2 use :
mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.4:generate \ -DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin \ -DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application \ -DarchetypeRepository=https://maven.vaadin.com/vaadin-prereleases \ -DarchetypeVersion=8.0.0.rc2
mvn -Pvaadin-prerelease clean installSee 'Using pre-releases with Maven' section for details.
