Web Frameworks

jat

JAT is a flexible Java base-framework which can be easily extended to improve projects start-up time. JAT allows to build Web applications (J2EE) or standalone application (server, batch, etc.). JAT supplies the main basic functionalities of any Java application, such as:

 * High Business Object abstraction
 * Integration facilities (provided for DBMS, LDAP and open to any software product)
 * Authentication and user privileges management
 * MVC pattern implementation (with privileges management and page flow control)
 * HTML layout structure management (header, footer, menu, etc.)
 * HTML dynamic contents and facilities (form, report, paging)
 * Logging feautures
 * Help on-line utility
 * High configuration of all described functionalities
 * Administration and configuration GUI

 

pustefix

Pustefix is a framework that helps you to develop web based applications. The framework consists of two more or less independent parts: A machinery to apply recursive XSLT transformations that produces the UI of the web application. A Java framework that takes input from the UI to change the application data and supplies changes of the application data back to the UI. Together, the framework acts similar to the Model-View-Controller pattern (as far as this is possible in the context of a web application).

 

trimpath-junction

TrimPath provides open-source (GPL & APL) web technologies, focused around JavaScript, synchronization, MVC, occasionally connected computing, and Google Gears. The open source Junction framework is a conventions-over-configuration, synchronizing web MVC framework for JavaScript. Features of Junction:

 * Junction is a riff of the Ruby on Rails framework into the world of JavaScript.
 * Junction makes your web application perform great.
 * Junction is a synchronizing MVC framework for building applications on top of Google Gears, but also does not require Google Gears if you don't want it.
 * Junction automatically synchronizes your client-side and server-side code and RDBMS's.
 * Junction still works even if the network is occasionally-connected or offline.
 * Junction can run your application in the web-browser or on a Rhino-based server, or both. It's your choice. And, you write your application code just once to support these different runtime options. No duplicate logic.

 

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.

 

myfaces

MyFaces is an implementation of JavaServer(tm) Faces (JSR 127), a new and upcoming web application framework that accomplishes the MVC paradigm. It is comparable to the well-known Struts Framework but has features and concepts that are beyond those of Struts.

 

jaffa

Jaffa (Java Application Framework For All) is an enterprise-focused Java framework for rapid application development. It provides a complete Java Web application development stack, extending exsiting projects like Tomcat and Struts at the frontend with MVC-based web widgets, all the way through to a high-performance lightweight O/R persistence engine, with plenty of rich features in between including rules engines, declarative application, and data security.

 

rsf

RSF is an open source web programming framework, with roughly the scope of Sun's JSF. RSF is written in Java, and is built on the Spring framework. RSF features a pure-HTML templating engine named IKAT, which achieves the cleanest separation between presentation and logic yet made - build "components" using pure HTML and libraries of code rather than heavy framework base classes. RSF also features a lightweight request-scope Spring clone, RSAC, which brings the magic benefits of inversion of control into the request scope. RSF currently has integrations for Hibernate, JSR-168, Cocoon and Sakai.

 

cocoon

Apache Cocoon is a web development framework built around the concepts of separation of concerns and component-based web development. Cocoon implements these concepts around the notion of 'component pipelines', each component on the pipeline specializing on a particular operation. This makes it possible to use a Lego(tm)-like approach in building web solutions, hooking together components into pipelines without any required programming.
