VaadinUI without web.xml

We've added some annotations to our vaadin UI to support UI configuration without web.xml (deployment descriptor).

Check this:

@Widgetset(value = "com.sibvisions.rad.ui.vaadin.ext.ui.Widgetset")
@Configuration({@Parameter(name = "main", value = "MinimalApplication$MyApplication")})
public class MinimalApplication extends VaadinUI
    @WebServlet(value = {"/minimal/*", "/VAADIN/*"}, asyncSupported = true)
    @VaadinServletConfiguration(productionMode = false, ui = MinimalApplication.class)
    public static class Servlet extends VaadinServlet

    public static class MyApplication extends Application
        public MyApplication(UILauncher pLauncher)
            setName("JVx application");
            setLayout(new UIBorderLayout());
            add(new UILabel("Hello JVx' vaadinUI"), UIBorderLayout.CENTER);

The example demonstrates a minimalistic JVx application with vaadin UI. It's like a standard vaadin application with one additional annotation:

@Configuration({@Parameter(name = "main", value = "MinimalApplication$MyApplication")})

The main parameter defines the JVx application class. It's the inner class MyApplication, in our example.

It's that easy!
