EJBWizard is a GUI Java app that allows you to fill in forms to create the prototype code for an Enterprise Java Bean. All 4 types of EJBs are supported, and if you have an existing database connection in your JOnAS server, it will allow you to log in to the DBMS and pull field definitions into the bean-generating process.
Velocity is a Java-based template engine. It permits anyone to use the simple yet powerful template language to reference objects defined in Java code. When Velocity is used for Web development, Web designers can work in parallel with Java programmers to develop Web sites according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) model, meaning that Web page designers can focus solely on creating a site that looks good, and programmers can focus solely on writing top-notch code. Velocity separates Java code from the Web pages, making the web site more maintainable over the long run and providing a viable alternative to Java Server Pages (JSPs) or PHP. Velocity also provides template services for the Turbine Web application framework, making a template service that allows Web applications to be developed according to a true MVC model.
joeq is a Java 2 (JDK 1.3 and 1.4) compatible virtual machine. It is unique in that it is entirely implemented in Java, leading to greater reliability, portability, maintainability, and efficiency. It is also language-independent, so code from any supported language can be seamlessly compiled, linked, and executed dynamically.
The Oculus Layout System supplies a Java layout API, and an easy-to-use visual builder, which works with both Swing and AWT. Main features include a proprietary stretching model, which enables the system to automatically infer how to properly stretch almost any user interface, and a cursor-based layout paradigm which dramatically improves the readability and maintainability of the layout code.
STORE consists of two related parts: a framework for representing the contents of a relational database as Java objects (similar to but simpler than Entity EJBs), and a set of tools for automatically creating Java classes and/or SQL statements from a DB diagram or existing DB tables.
Phptempt is a template engine for PHP and Java. Templates are precompiled and then included to the script/Java program as a PHP script/Java program. Templates are organized in blocks and placeholders, all placed in one single file. Blocks may be recursive. A version of the engine is available that is optimized for Java and particularly useful for the creation of code generators of any kind.
Jamon is a text template engine for Java that is useful for generating dynamic HTML, XML, or any text-based content. It has a rich feature set that supports encapsulation, parameterization, functional decomposition, and reuse of presentation logic. Because it is compiled to non-reflective Java code, and statically type-checked, Jamon is ideally suited to supporting refactoring of template-based UI applications. Templates declare the arguments they require for rendering, including dynamic template content ("fragments"), and are translated into Java classes with public methods whose signatures reflect the arguments declared in the templates. This provides compile-time type- checking as well as excellent performance.
