HTTP 1.1 is a well-known hypertext protocol for data transfer. HTTP messages are encoded with ISO-8859-1 (which can be nominally considered as an enhanced ASCII version, containing umlauts, diacritic and other characters of West European languages).

So, good news everyone!

As you probably know, Vaadin is one of the most popular web frameworks on Java. Most recently a new release of this framework for web UI development was issued – Vaadin 10.

Reading requirements for yet another web project for internal corporate use you (at least myself) usually see a pretty common set: well-defined data storage structure (or sometimes it’s an existing legacy DB), lots of forms for data entry, quite complex business logic, reporting and integrations with lots of existing corporate systems from accounting to supply management, thousands of concurrent users. What are your first thoughts?
