Even though Vaadin is primarily a UI-centric framework for creating web applications, the book does not get lost in describing the details of Vaadin's numerous UI components. Only the most important components such as Table, Tree, ComboBox, TextField or some of the layout components are described in such a way that you are able to understand how they work in principle. If you want to know more about the specifics of these and other components you have to consult additional reference material.
The Vaadin Toolkit comes with an insightful and comprehensive free reference book, the Book of Vaadin. Why should I spend money on this additional book Learning Vaadin 7 and is it worth its money? In my opinion it is. The Book of Vaadin gives quite a detailed description of most of the framework's aspects, but it stays focused on the framework itself. By that, with the Book of Vaadin you'd have to cover a lot of ground in order to get started with Vaadin.
Learning Vaadin 7 uses a different approach. It aims to cover Vaadin as one of the core tools for writing an enterprise application. Hence, it doesn't stop at describing the framework's principles but goes beyond that. You will also get an introduction to related technologies and tools that you'll typically encounter when writing anything other than the most simple Vaadin application. In particular, you'll learn about how to setup your development environment for Vaadin (using Eclipse and IntelliJ), using Maven for your Vaadin projects, Vaadin in a portal server, running Vaadin in the cloud, Vaadin and CDI, Vaadin and OSGi, writing your own custom components, server push, and so on.
In summary, Learning Vaadin 7 gives you a broader view on application development with Vaadin than the Book of Vaadin at the cost of detailedness.
Although Learning Vaadin 7 covers a lot of ground, there are still topics which are completely left out of the book or are only introduced concisely. Specifically, creating themes and Vaadin's commercial addons, such as TouchKit, TestBench, or Vaadin Charts, are not covered in the book at all. Vaadin's drag and drop feature is only briefly mentioned and described in a cursory way.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to take his or her first steps with the Vaadin framework and to get a first solid overview of the framework's features. Of course, since the book should first and foremost be seen as an introductory work, my advice to developers is to subsequently deepen their Vaadin knowledge with further readings, such as the Book of Vaadin and other Vaadin books available by the same or other publishers.
I was kindly provided with a copy of this book by Packt Publishing for writing this review.
* It has a really extensive and balanced introduction that defines Vaadin place in the Java and Web ecosystems. Actually, I think that it is worth reading on its own.
* It proceeds with detailed instructions on the development environment setup with a dive into production setup.
* It is really detailed with all the basic and not so basic concepts of building Vaadin applications clearly explained.
The drawbacks of the book, that I can name are:
* Examples use ant+ivy as a build system that seems less widespread to me, but it may have its benefits since it leaves much less area for "build magic" and gives more control and understanding of the build. Also information about Maven is given in a separate chapter.
* Book seems like a one time reading for me. It can not be used as reference - but again, it is clearly stated that this is not a goal.
* Also it will motivate readers to search for information as it should be done after the book is read.
As an overall conclusion, I would not buy such book for myself, but I will probably recommend it to newbie developers.
