It should already be possible, but I'll give you a heads up when the code is more feature
complete. :)

So far I am very happy. Developing a Vaadin application is easier than doing a GWT one if
you work with OSGi. Also, I think the actual website for Vaadin is very good documentation
and example wise. Building is quicker as no funky Java -> JavaScript conversion is necessary
and having a server side MVC model to work with is convenient.

The current code probably is not yet the best example as we're still learning and experimenting,
but it looks promising so far and I would definitely recommend others working with OSGi to
have a look at it.

Greetings, Marcel
