Here is a CAS client for Vaadin 7 you can use with any other dependency rather than the CAS client library. You don't need any filter with Apache Shiro as it is suggested on the official Vaadin website. To use it, just import the class into your project. Then, your UI class must extend it. Don't forget to adapt the source code to your context. You have to set your CAS server URL and eventually change the attributes you want to extract from the CAS response. Once the user is authenticated, a VaadinUser class instance is created. Just call VaadinUser.getCurrent() static method from everywhere to get it.

How to use it : a small example

 

public class MyApplicationUI extends CasAuthenticatedUI {
private CustomLayout contentLayout;
private Panel mainPanel;
@Override
protected void init(VaadinRequest request) {
super.init(request);
if (!super.isReadyToDisplayContent()) {
return;
}
setContent(...);
}
 
...
 
public class MyPanel extends Panel {
public MyPanel() {
super();
setContent(new Label(VaadinUser.getCurrent().getName()));
}
