Vaadin portlets initialise using JS and XHRs, typically a couple of milliseconds later than basic html markup based portlets. This approach may cause “flickering”, which may be a bit disturbing if there is other content below the Vaadin portlet, because the browser needs to re-flow the whole page after the Vaadin UI has decided how much space it actually needs in vertical direction. ...

Earlier this month Liferay held it's 3rd annual developer conference in Darmstadt, and I was grateful to be able to attend and see old friends, meet new ones, share some of my experiences, and learn a lot from the experts in attendance.

I'm slowly back to my regular sleep rhythm, after the highly anticipated sleep deprivation week that Devcon always is. Those ~450 participants that were there and made it the biggest and greatest Devcon so far will have seen that Liferay becomes a lot more serious in terms of messaging while still staying accessible on all levels. I've seen lots of connections being made and can...
