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



Swingweb is an implementation of AWT toolkit that enables AWT/Swing application to be operating inside a web container and presented as a web application to the web browser, purely in HTML/CSS/javascript. There's no code conversion required for the swing application to run in the SwingWeb environment. Some of the features of SwingWeb include the following:

 * Support web-environment with multiple concurrent application sessions
 * Component-oriented architecture that allows developer to enable existing swing component to web environment easily
 * Support common AWT/Swing components in java.awt.
 * and javax.swing.
 * Support all component layouts in jdk
 * Highly configurable use of jxp template for component presentation



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.



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.



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.



VRaptor is a MVC web framework. It is highly based on the Inversion of Control principles, using constructor injection to decouple your components from your business logic classes.



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).



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.
