JWt (Java Web Toolkit) is a library for developing accessible and interactive Web applications with an API that is widget-centric and inspired by desktop GUI APIs. To the developer, it offers abstraction of Web-specific implementation details, including graceful degradation. Under the hood, the library uses the latest techniques when available to handle events and update the user interface.
OpenSAGA is a model-centric Web application framework. It focuses on an abstract, non-technical application model that gets translated into an actual application by OpenSAGA. The model is mostly intentional and declarative instead of procedural. It describes what is there and how it's connected to other things instead of describing what to do. OpenSAGA aims to abstract the business concerns of an application away from its technical aspects. Currently, the model is edited as XML files assisted by an XML schema and an Eclipse plugin.
proghelp generates a Web application using a modified create table SQL syntax. It generates PosgreSQL stored procedures, a db layer, a BLL layer, a Web interface using WebToolkit (Wt), and random data for testing. It sets up default security: authentication and authorization. Modified SQL grammar allows you to mark search keys: the project automatically generates function calls and stored procedures with these search keys and exposes them in the UI. The project looks at foreign key references and automatically builds select dialog boxes.
Mother is a framework written in Python and based on Twisted. It is designed to make development of Web applications easy and fast. It provides: simple URL mapping to code; handling of multiple content types (HTML, JSON, etc.); integration with Tentacles ORM; and the use of templating tools (currently, only Mako is supported).
