Web Frameworks

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.

 

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.

 

tapestry

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.

 

wicket

Wicket is a Java web application framework that takes simplicity, separation of concerns and ease of development to a whole new level. Wicket pages can be mocked up, previewed and later revised using standard WYSIWYG HTML design tools. Dynamic content processing and form handling is all handled in Java code using a Swing-like component model backed by POJO data beans that can easily be persisted with Hibernate.

 

anvil

Anvil is a Java based server environment and object oriented programming language with templating support, being especially well-suited to for web applications.

 

helma

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

 

google-web-toolkit

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a 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.
