Web4thejob is a Java framework for rapid development of data-centric Web applications. It is ideal for those who seek a component-based event-driven full-stack Web development framework capable of producing elegant desktop-style Web applications which can automate any business domain. The framework addresses the automation needs of business domains by introducing "joblets". A joblet is the equivalent of an app on a mobile platform. Similarly to mobile apps which can turn a cellular phone to a social meeting point, a game console, or TV set (i.e., the smartphone), joblets can turn Web4thejob into a Web application suitable for any business domain.

Kohana is a PHP 5 framework that uses the Model View Controller architectural pattern. It aims to be secure, lightweight, and easy to use. Although it reuses many common design patterns and concepts, there are some things that make Kohana stand out.

Kohana has no dependencies on PECL extensions or PEAR libraries. Large, monolithic libraries are avoided in favor of optimized solutions.
