Open Source Java AJAX Framework

OpenXava is a productive way for creating AJAX Enterprise Applications with Java. Indeed, it’s faster developing with OpenXava than with Ruby On Rails, Spring MVC, or any other MVC framework. This is because in OpenXava you only have to write the Model. The Controllers are reused, and the View are generated automatically.

With OpenXava you put your JPA classes and, in exchange,  you will obtain a full featured application ready for production, and without code generation.

OpenXava has been created by Java developers (who need developing Java Enterprise applications in a productive way)  for their own use; hence it’s powerful, extensible and enjoyable by a Java expert. In the other hand OpenXava allows to a new Java developer to start rapidly to be productive, therefore is a pleasant experience for beginners too.
