This week I attended GWT.create in Munich which is hosted by the IBM partner Vaadin. I used the opportunity to learn a little about the Vaadin framework which has become very popular with a big community of developers.
Vaadin runs on IBM WebSphere Liberty. In November the Vaadin team added a Vaadin boilerplate to Bluemix that you should try out. Note that for some reason you need to clone and build the code locally first and then push to Bluemix before you can run the sample app.
At GTW.create, by the way, we presented IBM Bluemix in the showcase area. I had a lot of talks with developers who’ve never heard about Bluemix but were really excited by the capabilities. The photo below is from our first lottery.
