Use web application style with Vaadin

If you don't want a MDI for your web application, simply switch your application style to web style (see Vaadin Application style).

An example configuration:

Code: Select all
<servlet>
   <servlet-name>WebServlet</servlet-name>
   <servlet-class>com.sibvisions.rad.ui.vaadin.server.VaadinServlet</servlet-class>
   
   <init-param>
      <description>Vaadin UI class to use</description>
      <param-name>UI</param-name>
      <param-value>com.sibvisions.rad.ui.vaadin.impl.VaadinUI</param-value>
   </init-param>
   
   <init-param>
      <description>Application widgetset</description>
      <param-name>widgetset</param-name>
      <param-value>com.sibvisions.rad.ui.vaadin.ext.ui.Widgetset</param-value>
   </init-param>
   
   <init-param>
      <param-name>main</param-name>
      <param-value>com.sibvisions.apps.projx.ProjX</param-value>
   </init-param>
           
   <init-param>
      <param-name>config</param-name>
      <param-value>/com/sibvisions/apps/vaadin/web/application.xml</param-value>
   </init-param>      
       
   <init-param>
      <param-name>Application.setup.classname</param-name>
      <param-value>com.sibvisions.apps.vaadin.web.WebApplicationSetup</param-value>
   </init-param>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
   <servlet-name>WebServlet</servlet-name>
   <url-pattern>/web/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

<servlet-mapping>
   <servlet-name>WebServlet</servlet-name>
   <url-pattern>/VAADIN/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

The important thing is com.sibvisions.apps.vaadin.web.WebApplicationSetup because this class changes default style of ProjX.

The configuration doesn't change your work screens, but it changes everything else. It removes the menubar and toolbar. Your pages will be shown as page instead of windows. The UI is clean and simple because a web application should be easy to use.
