wingS is a component based web framework resembling the Java Swing API with its MVC paradigm and event oriented design principles. It utilizes the models, events, and event listeners of Swing and organizes the components as a hierarchy of containers with layout managers.
Version 2.0 comes with a completly rewritten rendering subsystem focusing on optimal stylability via CSS and new features like Drag & Drop support, context menus and Server-side code execution (AJAX).
Selected features of wingS 2.0 are:
* Comprehensive set of widgets including trees, tables, tabbed panes menus and more.
* Highly flexible dynamic layout managers
* Drag & Drop support
* Component context menus and tooltips
* Handling of browser back navigation
* Improved styleability via CSS
The distribution contains an extensive user documentation and various demo applications also available >>online. wingS is released under the LGPL licence. PermaLink
The Calyxo framework encourages in MVC model 2 based web application development. It offers support for true modular applications, i18n, a flexible view manager, a powerful validation engine, and more.
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.
The Verge Framework is an open source J2EE application framework written entirely in Java using only the standard J2EE APIs. This project aims to develop and promote a highly flexible and extensible framework for building enterprise applications.
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 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.
[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.
