Web Frameworks

jaffa

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.

 

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

 

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.

 

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.

 

verge

The Verge Framework is an open source J2EE application framework written entirely in Java using only the standard J2EE APIs. This project aims to develop and promote a highly flexible and extensible framework for building enterprise applications.

 

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.

 

makumba

Makumba is a query-centric MVC web framework designed to build database-driven without advanced knowledge of database systems or Java. It is simple to configure and eliminates all the overhead usually needed to get data from the database to the view. Its intuitive tag-library helps building complex sites in much less time than other frameworks. Its main features are:

 * Makumba List engine (using OQL/HQL as query language), to "loop" over records in the database and display them correctly according to their data type.
 * Makumba Forms, supporting nested forms and making it possible to build complex forms without having to worry about how the data will get stored.
 * Makumba Data Definitions (MDDs), an abstraction of the data model, making the model design very easy.

 

anvil

Anvil is a Java based server environment and object oriented programming language with templating support, being especially well-suited to for web applications.
