Subject: Size of the WAR-File
A short question about the WAR file:

Ours is about 25MBs large, with the Vaadin-JARs already taking 16MBs. Is this size okay? Seems a bit large for me.

Hi xtc,

WAR files and fat-JAR files can get very big suprisingly quickly. 25MB is a very normal size. It could be even bigger. (Please note: Github.com gets angry when you try to feed it with files bigger than 100MB).

PS:
In a real world software project the WAR file would be treated differently and not added to the repository.

This is necessary for enterprise projects. This way the costumer gets more bytes for his money!! ;)

I think it might be a good idea to use a continuous integration system. Our git repo now has already 133MB at 98 commits which is *really huge* for a git (compare this to the repo of the popular editor vim which has 175MB at 6000 commits). Using a continuous integration system not only the repo size would become smaller but the project would also get closer to real world working environments.
