Quick Start: Vaadin with Spring Boot

In this blog, we will go through how to develop web application using the Vaadin framework
Vaadin is the only framework that allows you to write UI 100% in Java without getting bogged down in JS, HTML, and CSS. If you prefer, you can also create layouts in HTML or with a visual designer. Vaadin apps run on the server and handle all communication automatically and securely.
Following technologies stack being used:
  • Spring Boot 2.1.1.RELEASE
  • Spring 5.1.3.RELEASE 
  • Maven 3
  • JDK 1.8

public class UserService {
 public List<User> findAll() {
  User user1 = new User(1, "KnowledgeFactory", "");
  User user2 = new User(2, "KnowledgeFactoryduplicate", "");
  List<User> users = new ArrayList<>();
  return users;
