Athena Framework for Java is a full fledged enterprise object-relational mapping (ORM) framework that employs metadata as mapping configuration. It greatly simplifies Java Web application development by removing the requirement of manual mapping and manual database schema updating. In addition to features like Java object persistence, powerful EJBQL querying execution, and comprehensive code generation, Athena has built-in support for multi-tenancy, which enables developers to build cloud applications easily. Athena can be easily integrated with other libraries like Struts or Spring to provide full stacks of service.

Butterfly Web UI is a component based Java Web application framework. Like the rest of the Butterfly Components, Butterfly Web UI is extremely small and very flexible. Butterfly Web UI uses Butterfly Container internally, a state of the art dependency injection container. Using Butterfly Web UI, it is easy both to generate HTML for a Web browser or XML or JSON for a RIA frontend (Flex, JavaFX, Silverlight) or AJAX frontend. You also can easily create HTML layout templates that are reused throughout your Web application, so you don't have the layout hardcoded into every page. You can easily mix RIA and non-RIA Web application technology in the same Web application.
With the Cibet framework, it is very easy to add various control mechanisms into a JPA and/or EJB-based Java application. The actual version includes control schemes like Archiving (manipulation of domain objects; data and execution of business processes are archived). From the archived state, domain objects can be reconstructed and business processes can be re-invoked with the same parameters at any time. The archive entries are secured against manipulation to make them audit-proof and revision safe. Four-eyes principle: this scheme is an example of a dual control mechanism: A user wants to perform some critical data manipulation or business process. With an applied dual control mechanism, the action is not executed in the production system directly, but stored and postponed. A second user must check the data and the action and can approve or decline. Only when the second user approves, the data manipulation or business process is executed in the production system; otherwise it is discarded. An even stricter example for a dual control mechanism is the six-eyes principle. In this case, a third user must approve a data manipulation or business process before it will become productive.
Enterprise Reporting Server (Birt) aims to be a Free Software replacement for the standard Birt webviewer. Some its features are: uploading and managing Birt .rptdesign files, user accounts with role-based access controls, fine-grained permissions on reports, and scheduling of reports (using Quartz Enterprise Scheduler).
