Jaffa (Java Application Framework For All) is an enterprise-focused Java framework for rapid application development. It provides a complete Java Web application development stack, extending exsiting projects like Tomcat and Struts at the frontend with MVC-based web widgets, all the way through to a high-performance lightweight O/R persistence engine, with plenty of rich features in between including rules engines, declarative application, and data security.
Macaw is an object-publishing framework designed for local web applications. Freemarker is used for presentation, Jetty is used as the default web container, and there is a basic integration with Hibernate (but other persistence mechanisms can be used). The framework requires two layers over the top of "business logic" classes: a Java web layer where certain simple method and class naming conventions are used to facilitate easy mapping of data to and from HTML, and Freemarker page templates. A small number of Freemarker tags are defined to enable references to Macaw-based objects within the page templates.
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.
The Mentawai goal is to be a simple, flexible, joyful and productive Java web framework.
* Simple: Mentawai is very simple to install, configure and understand.
* Flexible: The Mentawai architecture is very flexible and well organized, enabling any mortal to create new functionalities to the framework by implementing its core classes. The core of the framework is all based on interfaces.
* Complete: Mentawai offers transparent solutions for the repetitive tasks of every web project.
* Joyful: Mentawai offers programatic configuration with 100% pure Java code.
* Productive: Mentawai offers simple and practical solutions to most of the web development problems, reducing the developing time.
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.
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.
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
JOSSO, or Java Open Single Sign-On, is an open source J2EE-based SSO infrastructure aimed to provide a solution for centralized platform neutral user authentication.
