Web Frameworks

barracuda

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.

 

josso

JOSSO, or Java Open Single Sign-On, is an open source J2EE-based SSO infrastructure aimed to provide a solution for centralized platform neutral user authentication.

 

rife

RIFE offers an alternative approach to web application development and design. It builds upon the Java platform, but offers all required tools and APIs to implement and perform all common website related tasks in a fast, intuitive and consistent manner. RIFE has been designed for perfect separation of tasks during a development cycle. Every developer, dba and designer only has to focus on his own tasks. At any moment the work can be effortlessly integrated with the work of the rest of the team. This results in a loosely coupled and very robust system. One can make incremental improvements with little or no risk of unwanted side-effects elsewhere in the system. RIFE is composed out of a large collection of modular parts, which include:

 * web application engine,
 * integrated web continuations,
 * customizable multi-format template engine (html, xml, sql, java, txt, ...)
 * support for template content transforming through for example XSLT,
 * authentication framework,
 * database query builders,
 * simple persistance layer,
 * fault-tolerant JDBC wrappers and connection pooling,
 * web-oriented database utilities,
 * central data repository,
 * cron-like scheduler,
 * configuration framework. The central part is the engine which formalizes all aspects of dynamic web development. It graciously solves all doubt, confusion and maintenance problems of HTTP's statelessness and liberal CGI interface.

 

echo

Echo is a framework for developing object-oriented, event-driven Web applications. Echo removes the developer from having to think in terms of "page-based" applications and enables him/her to develop applications using the conventional object-oriented and event-driven paradigm for user interface development.

 

hamlets

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.

 

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.

 

helma

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