Server-side RIA

WARNING: This wiki page was last edited over a year ago and might be outdated.

I have been asked to speak about Vaadin Framework in various forums. During the years, the presentation has evolved to include an overview on the Server-side RIA architecture, application development demo and discussion on Vaadin architecture. The presentation is still evolving from conference to conference. On this page I have collected some additional materials and pointers related to the presentation.



The presentation has been created in Apple Keynote. Please find the "sources" for the presentation below and feel free to use them as basis for your own Vaadin related presentations:

Hi, I'm evaluating Vaadin in my Master Thesis - Vaadin is really good! I would like to use the diagrams about "Web 1.0", "Client-side RIA" and "Server-side RIA", last one also without the lock shown (I saw this in an older presentation). Would it be possible to upload these diagrams as bitmaps or in a PDF? This would be great! Indeed you already uploaded a PDF, but because of the background I can't use it...

Best regards

I linked to original Keynote slides above. You can copy the diagrams from there (with animations and all if you like).
