Vaadin (https://vaadin.com/home) is a web application framework for Java. Vaadin features a complete stack that includes a robust server-side programming model as well as client-side development tools based on GWT and HTML5.
With almost no experience in Vaadin, I spent 21 days building a web application. I will cover all my successes and setbacks along the way with a focus on the Developer Experience: learning a new framework, how long does it take to get up and running, Integration with existing Java frameworks. If you're interested in building UI's and have found it difficult to get started with a new language or IDE ... Vaadin might be what you have been looking for.
