Web Frameworks

rsf

RSF is an open source web programming framework, with roughly the scope of Sun's JSF. RSF is written in Java, and is built on the Spring framework. RSF features a pure-HTML templating engine named IKAT, which achieves the cleanest separation between presentation and logic yet made - build "components" using pure HTML and libraries of code rather than heavy framework base classes. RSF also features a lightweight request-scope Spring clone, RSAC, which brings the magic benefits of inversion of control into the request scope. RSF currently has integrations for Hibernate, JSR-168, Cocoon and Sakai.

 

pustefix

Pustefix is a framework that helps you to develop web based applications. The framework consists of two more or less independent parts: A machinery to apply recursive XSLT transformations that produces the UI of the web application. A Java framework that takes input from the UI to change the application data and supplies changes of the application data back to the UI. Together, the framework acts similar to the Model-View-Controller pattern (as far as this is possible in the context of a web application).

 

myfaces

MyFaces is an implementation of JavaServer(tm) Faces (JSR 127), a new and upcoming web application framework that accomplishes the MVC paradigm. It is comparable to the well-known Struts Framework but has features and concepts that are beyond those of Struts.

 

wings

wingS is a component based web framework resembling the Java Swing API with its MVC paradigm and event oriented design principles. It utilizes the models, events, and event listeners of Swing and organizes the components as a hierarchy of containers with layout managers. Version 2.0 comes with a completly rewritten rendering subsystem focusing on optimal stylability via CSS and new features like Drag & Drop support, context menus and Server-side code execution (AJAX). Selected features of wingS 2.0 are:

 * Comprehensive set of widgets including trees, tables, tabbed panes menus and more.
 * Highly flexible dynamic layout managers
 * Drag & Drop support
 * Component context menus and tooltips
 * Handling of browser back navigation
 * Improved styleability via CSS The distribution contains an extensive user documentation and various demo applications also available >>online. wingS is released under the LGPL licence. PermaLink

 

vraptor

VRaptor is a MVC web framework. It is highly based on the Inversion of Control principles, using constructor injection to decouple your components from your business logic classes.

 

echo

Echo is a framework for developing object-oriented, event-driven Web applications. Echo removes the developer from having to think in terms of "page-based" applications and enables him/her to develop applications using the conventional object-oriented and event-driven paradigm for user interface development.

 

hamlets

Hamlets (previously known as IBM Servlet-based Content Creation Framework) is an open source system for generating dynamic web-pages originally developed by René Pawlitzek at IBM. A Hamlet is a servlet extension that reads XHTML template files containing presentation using SAX (the Simple API for XML) and dynamically adds content on the fly to those places in the template which are marked with special tags and IDs using a small set of callback functions. A template compiler can be used to accerate Hamlets. Hamlets provide an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand, lightweight, small-footprint, servlet-based content creation framework that facilitates the development of Web-based applications. The Hamlets framework not only supports but also enforces the complete separation of content and presentation.
