Time for action – deploying and running

Steps for deploying and running Vaadin applications with Maven are as follows:

  1. Move to the directory that Maven created for your project. If you have specified welcome as artifactId, then move to the welcome directory.
  2. Before actually deploying the application we must compile it and package it. To do that, run the command:
    mvn package
    
  3. This will take some time, so be patient.
  4. Now we are ready. Run the command:
    mvn jetty:run
    
  5. If you haven't run this before, you will see a very verbose Maven downloading stuff.

    Tip

    Just in case if you want to break the old tradition:

    mvn tomcat:run
    
  6. Go to http://localhost:8080/welcome and play with the just created Vaadin application.
