Ajax Frameworks

google-web-toolkit

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open source 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. GWT lets you avoid many of these headaches while offering your users the same dynamic, standards-compliant experience. You write your front end in the Java programming language, and the GWT compiler converts your Java classes to browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML.

 

thinwire

ThinWire is an development framework that allows you to easily build applications for the web that have responsive, expressive and interactive user interfaces without the complexity of the alternatives. While virtually any web application can be built with ThinWire, when it comes to enterprise applications, the framework excels with its highly interactive and rich user interface components.

 

icefaces

ICEfaces is an integrated Ajax application framework that enables Java EE application developers to easily create and deploy thin-client rich Internet applications (RIA) in pure Java. ICEfaces leverages the entire standards-based Java EE ecosystem of tools and execution environments. Rich enterprise application features are developed in pure Java, and in a pure thin-client model. There are no Applets or proprietary browser plug-ins required. ICEfaces applications are JavaServer Faces (JSF) applications, so Java EE application development skills apply directly and Java developers are isolated from doing any JavaScript related development.

 

sweetdev-ria

SweetDEV RIA is a complete set of world-class Ajax tags in Java/J2EE. It helps you to design Rich GUI in a thin client. SweetDEV RIA provides you Out-Of-The-Box Ajax tags. Continue to develop your application with frameworks like Struts or JSF. SweetDEV RIA tags can be plugged into your JSP pages.

 

itsnat-natural-ajax

ItsNat is an open source (dual licensed GNU Affero General Public License v3/commercial license for closed source projects) Java AJAX Component based Web Framework. It offers a natural approach to the modern Web 2.0 development. ItsNat simulates a Universal W3C Java Browser in the server. The server mimics the behavior of a web browser, containing a W3C DOM Level 2 node tree and receiving W3C DOM Events using AJAX. Every DOM server change is automatically sent to the client and updated the client DOM accordingly. Consequences: pure (X)HTML templates and pure Java W3C DOM for the view logic. No JSP, no custom tags, no XML meta-programming, no expression languages, no black boxed components where the developer has absolute control of the view. ItsNat provides an, optional, event based (AJAX) Component System, inspired in Swing and reusing Swing as far as possible such as data and selection models, where every DOM element or element group can be easily a component.

 

echo2

Echo2 is the next-generation of the Echo Web Framework, a platform for developing web-based applications that approach the capabilities of rich clients. The 2.0 version holds true to the core concepts of Echo while providing dramatic performance, capability, and user-experience enhancements made possible by its new Ajax-based rendering engine.

 

dwr

DWR is a Java open source library which allows you to write Ajax web sites. It allows code in a browser to use Java functions running on a web server just as if it was in the browser. DWR works by dynamically generating Javascript based on Java classes. The code does some Ajax magic to make it feel like the execution is happening on the browser, but in reality the server is executing the code and DWR is marshalling the data back and forwards.
