The Kitikat Java Framework is a powerful but simple Datastore processing framework. A Datastore represents an in-memory copy of data. A program may retrieve the data from a data source, such as a relational database, manipulate the data, and then propagate the updates of the data back to the original data source or to a different data source. Once the data is retrieved, it is a disconnected, data source independent version of the data. A change history of the data is maintained to provide dynamic updates to a data source, and there are several levels of concurrency control provided for multi-user environments.
RIFE/Laszlo is based on RIFE/Jumpstart and geared towards easily getting started with the creation of Rich Internet Applications using OpenLaszlo. It is a ready-to-run source distribution and file structure that allows you to get started with a new OpenLaszlo application with RIFE in less then 2 minutes. Typically, all that you have to do is unzip the archive, open the project file in your favourite IDE, and run the application. Thanks to a dynamic development model, you rarely have to restart, and are able to gradually implement your application in an iterative manner.
VRaptor 2 is a Web-based MVC and IOC framework based on many frameworks and ideas (Seam, Stripes, Webwork, Hibernate Annotations, etc). It makes full use of Java 5 Annotations. It favors convention over configuration, because configuration in XML/properties/annotations is always easy to make mistakes and repetitive (aka copy and paste in many places). This framework uses a more imperative approach, instead of having many XML files to configure lifecycle and other properties. Most of the settings go inside plain Java objects (POJO), so the team knows exactly what is going on and where.
The Spring Rich Client Project (RCP) is a sub-project of the Spring Framework. Spring-RCP's mission is to provide an elegant way to build highly-configurable, GUI-standards-following rich-client applications faster by leveraging the Spring Framework. It also provides a rich library of UI factories and support classes. Its initial focus is on providing support for Swing applications, but a goal of Spring-RCP is to be view agnostic as much as possible.
Aranea is a hierarchical Model-View-Controller Web framework that provides a common, simple approach to building Web application components, reusing custom or general GUI logic, and extending the framework. The framework enforces programming using object oriented techniques with POJOs and provides a JSP tag library that facilitates the programming of Web GUIs without writing HTML. In addition to being a full-fledged Web framework in its own right, it provides a powerful and simple component system that allows the framework to be tailored by configuring the reusable modules and adding modules only for the missing features.
dao-zero is a tiny Java bean used to reduce the source of a persistence tier based on Spring's iBatis support. The usual way to use iBatis in Spring is to write code and invoke the iBatis API explicitly. dao-zero invokes the iBatis API for the developer automatically, without the need to write implementation code. It will implement DAO interfaces automatically and invoke iBatis SQL mapped statements for you. You can use it to replace your DAO bean class directly.
AppFuse is an application for "kickstarting" Web application development. It allows you to execute a single ant task to create a skeleton application based on Struts, Spring, and Hibernate running on Tomcat and MySQL. It uses Ant, XDoclet, Spring, Hibernate (or iBATIS), JUnit, jMock, StrutsTestCase, Canoo's WebTest, Struts Menu, Display Tag Library, OSCache, JSTL, and Struts. (Spring MVC, WebWork, Tapestry and JSF are also options.)
Wicket is a Java Web application framework implementing simplicity, separation of concerns, and ease of development. 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 component model backed by POJO data beans that can easily be persisted using your favourite technology.
Construct is a framework for command processing. It is based on a request/response cycle managed by a Controller. It has support for filters, filter chains, and command chaining. The controller has two modes for request processing: synchronous and asynchronous. Validators (commons-validator) are also supported.
