OpenXava 4m6: Rapid Java Web Development Framework

  • submit to reddit

OpenXava is a productive way for creating business AJAX applications with Java. With OpenXava you only need to write domain classes (simple Java classes annotated with JPA) to get an application ready for production.

OpenXava 4m6 has been released just now. Download and try it.

In constrast to other frameworks, like Grails and Spring Roo, OpenXava DOES NOT GENERATE CODE, in this way, you write less code for the initial development, but also you have less code during all the application lifecycle. The code you write is the only code you have to touch.

This new milestone toward the version 4 has over 40 new features and fixes, among them:

  • Groovy support.
  • Liferay 6 support with style integration.
  • New look & feel for button bar.
  • JPA 2.0 support.

Look at the changelog for the complete list.

The OpenXava team invite you to download and try this new OpenXava version.

Also, you can have a look at the demos, or learn more visiting www.openxava.org.
