Form creation has been
improved in Vaadin 7, so it is easier to handle custom types. In this recipe, we will show how to create a form that handles a bean that contains
DateTime type from the Joda-Time library.
We will create a simple form for editing a post. The post will be represented by a domain object, which will consist of text and date fields. The text field will be a simple string, as shown in the following screenshot. The date field will be of the
DateTime type from the Joda-Time framework.
More information about the Joda-Time framework can be found at http://joda-time.sourceforge.net.
