Feb 15, 2011

Magnolia, an open source content management vendor, announced that it has picked Vaadin web framework as the basis for the new user interface for Magnolia 5.0. The new user interface will employ next-generation technology that cuts development time by partners and Java developers by up to 50%.

Full support for touch, mouse, and keyboard input keeps Magnolia abreast of the latest iPad and other touch devices that are replacing desktops and laptops. Vaadin enables the Magnolia community to write extensions in a truly modular fashion, with shared components and pure Java packaging for a consistent user experience.
