ItsNat is an open source (dual licensed GNU Affero General Public License v3/commercial license for closed source projects) Java AJAX Component based Web Framework. It offers a natural approach to the modern Web 2.0 development. ItsNat simulates a Universal W3C Java Browser in the server. The server mimics the behavior of a web browser, containing a W3C DOM Level 2 node tree and receiving W3C DOM Events using AJAX. Every DOM server change is automatically sent to the client and updated the client DOM accordingly. Consequences: pure (X)HTML templates and pure Java W3C DOM for the view logic. No JSP, no custom tags, no XML meta-programming, no expression languages, no black boxed components where the developer has absolute control of the view. ItsNat provides an, optional, event based (AJAX) Component System, inspired in Swing and reusing Swing as far as possible such as data and selection models, where every DOM element or element group can be easily a component.
