Data Binding of Nested Properties
The data binding in Vaadin (since 7.x) is done with the FieldGroup class. But the FieldGroup does not support nested properties of Java Beans. There is a subclass BeanFieldGroup which does support nested properties.
BeanFieldGroup<Customer> binder = new BeanFieldGroup<Customer>(Customer.class); binder.setItemDataSource(customer); ... binder.bind(streetField, "address.street");
