Get Started

Using Vaadin Maven archetypes you can quickly create a new project for different purposes. They also give you example configurations that you can apply to your own projects.

Command line Maven:

mvn archetype:generate \
-DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin \
-DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application \

Now you have a barebones Vaadin project with Maven build script. You can build the war file using mvn install, start the project using mvn jetty:run or import it into your IDE.
