Web Frameworks

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.

 

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.

 

dwr

DWR is AJAX and XMLHttpRequest made easy. It makes it simple to call Java on the server directly from Javascript in the browser marshalling all the parameters and return values. It gets rid of almost all the boiler plate code between the web browser and your Java code. interaction diagram DWR helps you in producing highly interactive web-sites by providing some Javascript libraries to help with DHTML and by giving you a set of examples to copy from.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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..

 

josso

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.
