Running Vaadin on Grails

Grails is a web application framework, which uses the Groovy language, following the coding by convention paradigm. All the information about Grails can be found at the following link:

http://grails.org

The Grails plugin called vaadin integrates Vaadin into the Grails project. Therefore, we can use Vaadin as a replacement for the Grails view layer. Instead of writing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, we make Vaadin view in Groovy. More information about the Vaadin integration is available at the following web page:
