Whole project is Java based and managed by Maven. Vaadin application is embedded into Grails Framework and is written in Groovy language. We have chosen Vaadin because we wanted to create a powerful user interface like in Ext-JS or Adobe Flash, but it had to be easy to create, maintain and modify.
"We use Vaadin to build advanced analytical dashboard in our web application. The technology is easy to learn especially if you are used to creating desktop application in Swing or Windows Forms. Choosing Vaadin made our dev team more agile as even backend developers are familiar with technology and can do tasks that would normally be strictly reserved to frontend developers. In our project Vaadin is embedded into Grails application which is part of the bigger system managed by Maven. With such combination we are able to quickly create, edit and maintain sophisticated user interface."
