        protected void init(VaadinRequest request) {

            //create the components you want to use
            // and set the main component with setContent(..)
            final Layout layout = new VerticalLayout();
                .addComponent(new Button("click me",
                                         event -> layout.addComponents(new Label("clicked again"))

            //set the main Component

        @VaadinServletConfiguration(productionMode = false, ui = MyUI.class)
