[fleXive] is a Java EE 5 open-source framework for the development of complex and evolving (web-)applications. It speeds up development by easing many tedious and repetitive programming tasks and helping to keep your application(s) flexible during the development-cycle and in production.
[fleXive] concentrates on enterprise-scale content modeling, storage and retrieval, and includes comprehensive JSF support for displaying and manipulating these contents in (web) applications. The runtime environment can be included in existing Java EE applications, but you can also build new applications and package them into stand-alone Java EE applications.
[fleXive] provides essential features for data-centric applications:
* Secure EJB-based persistence engine
* Web development JSF toolkit
* Powerful administration interfaces
* Based on the latest industry-standards like Java 6, EJB 3, JSF, etc.
Restlet is a framework that brings the simplicity and efficiency of the REST architectural style to Java developers. It is composed of two parts, a neutral API and a reference implementation (Noelios Restlet Engine). It supports all REST concepts (resource, representation, data, connector, components, etc.) and is suitable for both client and server REST applications. The server connectors provided are HTTP (via Mortbay's Jetty or an adapter Servlet) and the client connectors are HTTP, JDBC, and SMTP (via JavaMail).
Turbine is a servlet based framework that allows experienced Java developers to quickly build secure web applications. Turbine is an excellent choice for developing applications that make use of a services-oriented architecture. Some of the functionality provided with Turbine includes a security management system, a scheduling service, XML-defined form validation server, and an XML-RPC service for web services. It is a simple task to create new services particular to your application.
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.
Japple is a rapid application development environment for building web applications and services. Built on the JavaTM2 Platform and open-standards, Japple allows you to develop and deploy web applications faster, easier and more efficiently than traditional methods.
Stripes is a Java web framework that makes web development as easy as it should be. It requires zero external configuration beyond the registration of one servlet and one filter. Stripes includes simple yet powerful solutions to common problems such as indexed properties, multi-event forms, localization and use of domain objects in the web tier. All of this in a compact framework with hardly any dependencies!
Barracuda is an open-source Presentation Framework designed to make it easier to build servlet based webapps by applying proven client-server patterns to the web development paradigm. It features a DOM based templating mechanism for better separation of code from content (default XMLC), a UI component model that provides a series of server side widgets (table, list, template, etc) that make it easy to manipulate DOM structures, and a strongly typed MVC interfaces just like in Swing. With support for multiple markup languages (HTML, WML, XML, etc). It has an event model that provides Model 2 style flow control and allows for true event driven programming on the server. You can add listeners to components and your server-side event handler code will automatically get notified when an action occurs on the client.
jWic is a java-based development framework for developing dynamic web applications with the convenience and familiarity of 'rich client' style programming. The component-based, event-driven programming model makes it easy for developers to quickly create flexible and robust web applications.
The collection of standard jWic controls has built-in Ajax functionality to enhance the end-user experience. Developers can also implement their own jWic controls and combine and incorporate them into their web applications.
