No, it's mainly a real Java application, with just the actual UI layer
display and interaction in JS/CEF. It's basically running both sides of a
Vaadin client/server web application locally via Electron. Rather
heavyweight way to do it, perhaps! On the other hand the open source
nature, active development and distribution framework of Electron make it
potentially an attractive option for mixed Java/HTML applications.
