The XView4Struts project is an extension to the Jakarta Struts Framework. Its main purpose is to eliminate the need to use tag libraries and JSP pages. The view is pure HTML, and interaction between the view and the model is transparent to the developer.

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.
Xataface is a flexible and shapable skin that sits on top of MySQL, making it accessible to every-day users. It automatically generates the appropriate forms, lists, and menus for a user to interact with the database without having to know any SQL.

A generic application with no customizations is completely functional, but the developer is free to customize things at his leisure.
