OpenXava is a tool for Rapid Development of WebSphere Applications.
In OpenXava you only have to write the domain classes in plain Java to get an
application ready to be deployed on WebSphere Application Server or WebSphere
OpenXava 5.4 has a new and modern icon set, a simplified UI for charts, a
search box when adding new columns to list, image editor supported in
@ElementCollection, and many more things.
We invite you to download it and upgrade your OpenXava applications. Look at
the migration instructions.
This is the new look of OpenXava:
All modern applications use monochrome icons, so now your OpenXava
applications will have a more modern look. The monochrome icons allow you to
use the color to emphasize important data and actions in your application.
Moreover, these icons are scalable, therefore when the user zooms the page
the quaility is not ... (more)
This is a story about creating a user interface easily, or better yet, about
having good user interfaces without working for them.
Once upon a time, you created a really cool invoicing application. Your
wonderful application had an agile MS-DOS (or Unix, or AS/400, or HOST)
character interface, but your users demanded a Windows interface: more
beautiful, and easier to use. So, you rewrote your application to have a
Windows user interface. All OK, but then your users asked you for a
multiplatform application, so you rewrote your application in Java with AWT,
but your ... (more)
OpenXava 3.1.4 is a framework focused in productivity for developing business
Java applications. The idea is that you write only your POJOs annotated with
JPA and you get an application ready for production.
With OpenXava, you only need to write your model, POJOs and Java annotations.
You do not need to write the view, and the controller (for CRUD, printing,
etc) is reused. And from that you'll have an application for CRUD, report
generation in PDF, export to Excel, searching, sorting, validations etc. You
only need to write a simple Java class, no XMLs, no JSPs and no code
OpenXava is a framework for Rapid Java Web Development, well-suited for
business and database oriented applications.
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
collections is obtained via JPA, before JDBC was used. Automated Business
Logic (ABL) library added. All new layout architecture (the code that paints
the UI... (more)
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)
