Vaadin is a Java web application framework. It is designed for creating rich and interactive applications that run in the browser, without any plugins. A server-driven architecture together with reusable component model is used to simplify programming of applications and for better web application security. No HTML, XML or JavaScript necessary and all Java libraries and tools are at your disposal.

Vaadin is designed to build web applications, not just web-sites. This positions it for application rather than website development. Vaadin comes with great-looking components and easy use of themes. Built on GWT-based widgets, Vaadin applications support all Ajax-capable browsers, with no plugins. The server-side architecture ensures that your application code is hidden from the world.

It is mature software, with development starting in 2000.
