TURKU, Finland, Nov. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vaadin, a provider of web application platforms for Java, announces the new version of its open-source framework, Hilla. Hilla adds support for React, the most popular JavaScript library for building high-performance front-end applications.

Hilla complements React by providing a platform for application teams to build business applications faster than React alone.

It allows developers to:

  • Save development time with simplified communication between the front and back-end, without the need to create a REST API.
  • discover and fix errors earlier with end-to-end type safety and support for TypeScript, the most popular version of JavaScript;
  • Build modern UIs faster with over 45 UI components for React and a customizable base theme;
  • simplify security with secure-by-default endpoints and validation that ensures data integrity on the server and client;
  • get started quickly with a zero-configuration toolchain to build both the UI and the back-end;

“Many development teams combine JavaScript/TypeScript on the front-end with a Java back-end,” said Steven Grandchamp, CEO of Vaadin. “Although React is the most popular JavaScript library, developers also recognize that combining React with other tools can further improve productivity. Hilla provides a comprehensive platform, supported and maintained by Vaadin, that works seamlessly with React, allowing application teams to build business applications faster than with React alone.

The new version of Hilla will be generally available in December 2022. Vaadin offers subscriptions for Hilla that include advanced user interface components and enterprise-grade support and maintenance.
