Web Frameworks

jucas

Jucas is a web-framework which brings together the pull MVC concept with component orientated design GUI programming.

 

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.

 

jzeno

jZeno is an open source java development framework that offers the ability to develop rich web applications. The main architectural goal of jZeno is to allow people to create web applications using pure java development as much as possible. Largely reducing the need to know technologies like javascript, HTML, CSS, database specific SQL, JSP, JSF, etc..

 

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.

 

macaw

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.

 

thinwire

ThinWire is a development framework that allows you to easily build applications for the web that look and feel like the desktop applications you're familiar with. Responsive, expressive & interactive user interfaces in your web browser without the complexity of the alternatives.

 

rife

RIFE offers an alternative approach to web application development and design. It builds upon the Java platform, but offers all required tools and APIs to implement and perform all common website related tasks in a fast, intuitive and consistent manner. RIFE has been designed for perfect separation of tasks during a development cycle. Every developer, dba and designer only has to focus on his own tasks. At any moment the work can be effortlessly integrated with the work of the rest of the team. This results in a loosely coupled and very robust system. One can make incremental improvements with little or no risk of unwanted side-effects elsewhere in the system. RIFE is composed out of a large collection of modular parts, which include:

 * web application engine,
 * integrated web continuations,
 * customizable multi-format template engine (html, xml, sql, java, txt, ...)
 * support for template content transforming through for example XSLT,
 * authentication framework,
 * database query builders,
 * simple persistance layer,
 * fault-tolerant JDBC wrappers and connection pooling,
 * web-oriented database utilities,
 * central data repository,
 * cron-like scheduler,
 * configuration framework. The central part is the engine which formalizes all aspects of dynamic web development. It graciously solves all doubt, confusion and maintenance problems of HTTP's statelessness and liberal CGI interface.

 

tapestry

Tapestry is a powerful, open-source, all-Java framework for creating leading edge web applications in Java. Tapestry reconceptualizes web application development in terms of objects, methods and properties instead of URLs and query parameters. Tapestry is an alternative to scripting environments such as JavaServer Pages or Velocity. Tapestry goes far further, providing a complete framework for creating extremely dynamic applications with minimal amounts of coding.
