Instant Java Rich Application Builder

  • submit to reddit
There's been a lot of discussion here lately about how to fix Java, with suggestions focused on writing new scripting languages, markup languages, application or binding frameworks and even a re-write, "Swing 2.0".

I don't think the answer is to re-invent anything, but instead to build on top of the powerful stack that we already have. And that's what we're doing: writing a complete Java Application Builder that makes basic tasks super-easy and advanced tasks manageable. And helps with database development. And deployment. And is a platform for Rich Internet Applications.

Below is a link to our preview release project page. Let us know if you think we're on to something. And, *shameless plug*, let us know if your company would like to use this to save development time, and can afford to help us by investing in an early adopter program.
