WidgetServer is a Java/XML server-side GUI-framework which enables an application to run as either a monolithic Swing app, a client/server Swing app, or as a Web app without any change and without loss of functionality. An Eclipse Plugin is available as well. A rich widget set is supported that includes tree views, tabbed panes, split panels, and much more. Animations, all types of events, and several effects are supported, as well. A unified widget-based, object-oriented programming interface for Web and Swing GUIs is offered to the developer to control and assemble the GUI. Web applications are fully AJAX enabled. For Swing client/server applications, the framework handles client/server communication, including compression and security layers.
XWidglets is a complete rich Java Swing tool for designing, creating, and using XML-based GUIs. It provides a lightweight XML client, clear separation between view, data, and process, MVC I and II support, event management, a consistent look and feel across platforms, a rich set of GUI components, and n-tier architecture integration.
Swing has lot of components built in, but still some are missing. This project provides the developer community with these missing components, inspired from modern user interfaces. It provides a PropertySheet component, a collapsible task pane (JTaskPane), a button bar (JButtonBar), a font chooser (JFontChooser), an Outlook Bar (JOutlookBar), a Tip Of The Day dialog (JTipOfTheDay), and a directory chooser (JDirectoryChooser).
IT Mill Toolkit is a server-side RIA (Rich Internet Application) library that provides a versatile set of AJAX widgets for Java programmers. Applications are programmed in Java and executed server-side. At the client-side (i.e. in the browser), enhanced GWT widgets are used for presentation.
Salsa is a collection of Swing add-ons. It includes new widgets such as auto-complete textboxes or tree tables, new data models such as XML tree models, UI tree models, or Java Bean table models, new common dialogs such as a font chooser, new convenience methods such as center frame on screen, and much more.
Squires is a Python library which simplifies the creation of powerful self-documenting readline-based command line interfaces. Scripts using Squires have the following features in their interface: full readline bindings, tab completion of commands and their options, inline command help (which is accessed by pressing tab), option syntax validation, and hidden commands and options.
Tapestry Palette is a plugin for Eclipse that builds upon the Spindle plugin. The palette provides a tree view of Tapestry component libraries, a component inspector to discover parameters available with links to HTML documentation, drag and drop addition of Tapestry component references to templates, and a Property Sheet for editing of component bindings. The plugin can be installed from within Eclipse via an update site.
