Web Frameworks

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.

 

helma

Helma is an open source web application framework for fast and efficient scripting and serving of your websites and Internet applications.

 

google-web-toolkit

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a Java software development framework that makes writing AJAX applications like Google Maps and Gmail easy for developers who don't speak browser quirks as a second language. Writing dynamic web applications today is a tedious and error-prone process; you spend 90% of your time working around subtle incompatibilities between web browsers and platforms, and JavaScript's lack of modularity makes sharing, testing, and reusing AJAX components difficult and fragile.

 

wicket

Wicket is a Java web application framework that takes simplicity, separation of concerns and ease of development to a whole new level. Wicket pages can be mocked up, previewed and later revised using standard WYSIWYG HTML design tools. Dynamic content processing and form handling is all handled in Java code using a Swing-like component model backed by POJO data beans that can easily be persisted with Hibernate.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.
