Expresso Framework is an open standards-based J2EE architectural framework that allows the developer to concentrate on application logic. It is a library of extensible Java Server application framework components for creating database-driven Web applications based on open standards. Expresso integrates with Apache Jakarta Struts, which emphasizes presentation and application configuration, and bringing a powerful tag library to Expresso. Expresso adds capabilities for security, robust object-relational mapping, background job handling and scheduling, self-tests, logging integration, automated table manipulation, database connection pooling, email connectivity, event notification, error handling, caching, internationalization, XML automation, testing, registration objects, configuration management, workflow, automatic database maintenance, and a JSP tag library.
Morcego is a 3D graph browser for viewing and navigating any graph-like structure. Examples of such structures include social networks, site maps, hierarchies, and genealogy trees. It currently only support simple graphs. It's already integrated into TikiWiki. Morcego is not meant to provide a solution for the end user, but to be embedded in a Web application by developers. It's a Java applet that communicates with an XML-RPC server to load the graph that is displayed.
Struts is a Jakarta project that provides a J2EE framework for building Web applications. It is based on a Model 2 approach, a variant of MVC. Struts provides its own Controller component and integrates with other technologies to provide the Model and the View. For the Model, Struts can interact with any standard data access technology, including Enterprise Java Beans, JDBC, and Object Relational Bridge. For the View, Struts works well with JavaServer Pages, Velocity Templates, XSLT, and other presentation systems.
JTLT is a general text based templating system that is very easy to use and powerful. It can be used for almost anything, including code generation for translators/compilers and HTML output for Java servlets. It features replaceable keys, nested block structures, an extensible macro system (even keys are implemented as macros), a separation of parsing and output generation, a separation of macro settings and parsing, in-memory caching of parsed templates, weak typing, and extensive documentation.
FM-Classic provides an easy way to get data from Java servlets into Web pages. It also helps you keep graphic design separate from application logic. The template language is powerful and intuitive, the compiler is fast, and the output approaches the speed of static HTML pages. FM-Classic is a continuation of the FreeMarker 1.x code base.
The zen Platform is a Java development environment for J2SE/J2EE. It eases and accelerates the Java application development by visual methods (RAD). Complete applications can be modelled in an intuitive fashion without the need for technical expertise. The complexity of Java and J2EE programming is tremendously hidden - reducing the learning curve for Java novices. Java experts are by no means restricted - they may apply their knowledge without limitations. Application flexibility is a core feature of the platform, which is delivered as an Eclipse plugin.
