OpenXava is an open source framework for Rapid Development of WebSphere and
WebSphere Portal applications, well-suited for business and database oriented
OpenXava allows you develop applications just by writing simple domain
classes with Java or Groovy. The user interface is generated automatically in
runtime, without code generation.
OpenXava 4.5 has some new interesting features such as:
Support for all strategies of JPA inheritance mapping. Data for list and

A notable problem of Java Enterprise Development is its inherent complexity.
Also if you use Java EE standard or Spring, your development team will never
be as productive as a VisualBasic, PHP, Ruby&Rails, 4GL or even COBOL
development team. The complexity of Java Enterprise requires very skilled
developers, moreover these developers need to write a lot of code.
The ideal solution for this problem could be the Model-Driven Development
approach. Basically MDD states that just the model part of an application has
to be developed, and the rest of the application will be generated from... (more)
The goal of this book is to teach you how to develop Java Enterprise
applications with OpenXava and other Java-related technologies, tools and
frameworks. The way to achieve this goal is developing an application from
scratch, step-by-step, until your application will be complete.
In this book you'll learn, not only OpenXava, but JPA, Eclipse, PostgreSQL,
JUnit, HtmlUnit, Hibernate Validator framework, Liferay, etc. And more
important, you're going to learn techniques to solve common and advanced
cases you'll face developing business applications.
