I'm late but I want to thank you for your efforts and insights.

Go seems an interesting tool. There was recently a tutorial in the 
german IT magazine Ix. The whole thing is toward simplicity - straight 
forward. No runtime like jetty, tomcat, python, ... is needed. Could be 
an alternative here and an entry point to the golang world.

This is a pure in house service so I guess the mentioned vulnerabilities 
are not so crucial. I mean if somebody has entered our network and is 
able to start an denial of service attack to this service we have much 
lager problem than one not responding service.

Cool. I always found Vaadin interesting but never took the time to 
really learn it. Perhaps I'll try the new version 10.

That's quite the way I feel. Every quarter there is at least one new 
programming languageĀ  and/or java script framework.
