Web Frameworks


JAT is a flexible Java base-framework which can be easily extended to improve projects start-up time. JAT allows to build Web applications (J2EE) or standalone application (server, batch, etc.). JAT supplies the main basic functionalities of any Java application, such as:

 * High Business Object abstraction
 * Integration facilities (provided for DBMS, LDAP and open to any software product)
 * Authentication and user privileges management
 * MVC pattern implementation (with privileges management and page flow control)
 * HTML layout structure management (header, footer, menu, etc.)
 * HTML dynamic contents and facilities (form, report, paging)
 * Logging feautures
 * Help on-line utility
 * High configuration of all described functionalities
 * Administration and configuration GUI



Swingweb is an implementation of AWT toolkit that enables AWT/Swing application to be operating inside a web container and presented as a web application to the web browser, purely in HTML/CSS/javascript. There's no code conversion required for the swing application to run in the SwingWeb environment. Some of the features of SwingWeb include the following:

 * Support web-environment with multiple concurrent application sessions
 * Component-oriented architecture that allows developer to enable existing swing component to web environment easily
 * Support common AWT/Swing components in java.awt.
 * and javax.swing.
 * Support all component layouts in jdk
 * Highly configurable use of jxp template for component presentation



TrimPath provides open-source (GPL & APL) web technologies, focused around JavaScript, synchronization, MVC, occasionally connected computing, and Google Gears. The open source Junction framework is a conventions-over-configuration, synchronizing web MVC framework for JavaScript. Features of Junction:

 * Junction is a riff of the Ruby on Rails framework into the world of JavaScript.
 * Junction makes your web application perform great.
 * Junction is a synchronizing MVC framework for building applications on top of Google Gears, but also does not require Google Gears if you don't want it.
 * Junction automatically synchronizes your client-side and server-side code and RDBMS's.
 * Junction still works even if the network is occasionally-connected or offline.
 * Junction can run your application in the web-browser or on a Rhino-based server, or both. It's your choice. And, you write your application code just once to support these different runtime options. No duplicate logic.



Apache Cocoon is a web development framework built around the concepts of separation of concerns and component-based web development. Cocoon implements these concepts around the notion of 'component pipelines', each component on the pipeline specializing on a particular operation. This makes it possible to use a Lego(tm)-like approach in building web solutions, hooking together components into pipelines without any required programming.



RSF is an open source web programming framework, with roughly the scope of Sun's JSF. RSF is written in Java, and is built on the Spring framework. RSF features a pure-HTML templating engine named IKAT, which achieves the cleanest separation between presentation and logic yet made - build "components" using pure HTML and libraries of code rather than heavy framework base classes. RSF also features a lightweight request-scope Spring clone, RSAC, which brings the magic benefits of inversion of control into the request scope. RSF currently has integrations for Hibernate, JSR-168, Cocoon and Sakai.



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.



The caramba framework is built from bottom to top with one main goal: creating Responsive, Rich Internet Applications. With the AJAX technology we could already achieve this, but it was hard to debug, error prone and time intensive to make it work. We are sure that simplicity can be achieved by following the event driven architecture: Caramba is 100% event driven, so very, very easy to use. Using Caramba makes it possible to make fancy, responsive web-applications without having to write a single line of JavaScript. You don't need to learn another language. Just the good old java syntax and JSP, that's all you need to know to get started.



a nice alternative to struts like framework you do not need to xrite a signle html line
