Web Frameworks

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

jucas

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

 

aurora

Aurora is an open-source MVC framework that is aimed at writing configurable, fully object-oriented form controllers using the Spring Framework. The code-base grew out of my experience using Spring's MVC module and slowly developed over several versions into a full-fledged framework that attempts at tackling the most common problems that I had when using Spring MVC and other J2EE web-related issues in general.

 

click

Click is a J2EE web application framework created for commercial Java developers. Click Highlights

 * Very easy to learn
 * Component and Page Oriented design
 * Event base programming model
 * Automatic form validation
