New book about Vaadin Framework 8 coming out

As some of you may already know, I started writing a book about Vaadin 8 for Packt Publishing almost a year ago. After inevitable hindrances and changes in the scope and schedule, the book is almost ready now!

The book is addressed to Java web developers with basic knowledge of the Vaadin Framework 8. If you have followed the tutorial at https://vaadin.com/docs/v8/framework/tutorial.html and have played around with the framework, this book is for you. Of course, more experienced developers can also find interesting ideas in this book.

The book covers topics related to software design such as code organization, modularization, and API design. It also serves as a practical guide to common features in business applications, ranging from authentication and authorization to reporting and CRUD user interfaces.

Here's the outline (chapters) of the book:

  1. Creating new Vaadin projects
  2. Modularization and main screens
  3. Implementing server-side components with internationalization
  4. Implementing authentication and authorization
  5. Connecting to SQL databases
  6. Implementing CRUD user interfaces
  7. Adding reporting capabilities
  8. Lazy loading

​I'll announce on Twitter and here once the book gets published. Stay tuned!
