Web Frameworks

struts

Apache Struts is a free open-source framework for creating Java web applications.

Web applications differ from conventional websites in that web applications can create a dynamic response. Many websites deliver only static pages. A web application can interact with databases and business logic engines to customize a response.

Web applications based on JavaServer Pages sometimes commingle database code, page design code, and control flow code. In practice, we find that unless these concerns are separated, larger applications become difficult to maintain.

One way to separate concerns in a software application is to use a Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture. The Model represents the business or database code, the View represents the page design code, and the Controller represents the navigational code. The Struts framework is designed to help developers create web applications that utilize a MVC architecture.

The framework provides three key components:

* A "request" handler provided by the application developer that is mapped to a standard URI.
* A "response" handler that transfers control to another resource which completes the response.
* A tag library that helps developers create interactive form-based applications with server pages.

The framework's architecture and tags are buzzword compliant. Struts works well with conventional REST applications and with nouveau technologies like SOAP and AJAX.

 

brill

The Brill Framework is an open source framework for developing transactional web sites using Java and XHTML. The Brill Framework was developed by Chris Bulcock, as a result of becoming frustrated with frameworks such as Apache Struts, which depends on Java Server Pages. The objective was to develop a framework that is simple, that supports WYSIWYG page editing and does not require Java code or special tags within the Server Pages.

 

webwork

WebWork is a web application framework for J2EE. It is based on a concept called "Pull HMVC" (Pull Hierarchical Model View Controller).

 

vroom

Vroom is a framework for HTML/JSP and Java code binding. It's extremely simple to use and very powerful. It can control your HTML widgets on the fly. It can be applied independently as JSP/Servlet Model or can be integrated with Struts, JSF, YUI etc. No custom tags, no complex configurations, just simple binding configuration file and backing beans.

 

swinglets

Program your JPS & Servlets like you program your Swing components. Swinglets is a server side component library that uses an identical design to Swing. Swinglets has look and feels for HTML, Java Script and WML. The Components, Models, Renderers, and LookAndFeels are very similar. It has Swing event handling too. In fact Swinglets actually uses the Swing models (e.g. TableModel). This means you can take your existing models and start working with Servlets straight away. It's just about as close to a standard as you can get without it actually coming from Sun themselves.

 

jpublish

JPublish is a powerful web publishing system designed to ensure a clean separation of developer roles. JPublish includes support for multiple templating engines, including Jakarta Apache's Velocity, FreeMarker and WebMacro. JPublish supports numerous scripting languages including Python, BeanShell, and JavaScript. JPublish is modular and provides for easy extensibility.

 

jspwidget

JSPWidget is a JSP Framework that provides event-driven,view state retained,server-side GUI controls to make JSP development as intuitive as in traditional client forms or in client-based Web applications.

 

zk

ZK is an AJAX-based, event-driven, XUL-compliant, all Java framework for enabling Web applications to have the rich user experiences. With intuitive event-driven model, you represent your application in feature-rich XUL components, and manipulate these components by listening to events triggered by users, as simple as you did for years in desktop applications. No JavaScript. No replication of business logic at the clients. No proprietary components. No compilation. ZK works with existent frameworks and technologies, such as JSF and Portals, so the pace of adapting it is all under your control.
