aurora

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.

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.

 

makumba

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.

stripes

Stripes is a Java web framework that makes web development as easy as it should be. It requires zero external configuration beyond the registration of one servlet and one filter. Stripes includes simple yet powerful solutions to common problems such as indexed properties, multi-event forms, localization and use of domain objects in the web tier. All of this in a compact framework with hardly any dependencies!
