GWT as a compiler and SDK is well known web frontend technology for writing client applications with pure Java. Server driven frameworks such as Vaadin use GWT based thin client to automate data transportation and view rendering for client browsers.

How does Vaadin’s communication mechanism work internally with GWT and what kind of transportation techniques are used? How is the server side component state reflected to client side widget and what happens when there’s user interaction? What about Polymer and web components, how would we utilize them with Vaadin?

This session will establish a solid ground work for answering these questions and will tell you the most intriguing details on what really happens behind the scenes of the framework.
