RIFE 0.7.2 Description:
RIFE aims to offer a viable solution for rapid web application development in Java without being troubled by the complex implications of J2EE. It's important that it allows the usage of any additional components and that it doesn't enforce the user to adopt all integrated solutions. You use what you need. No more, no less. RIFE is composed out of a large collection of modular parts, which include: - web application engine, - integrated web continuations, - customizable multi-format template engine (html, xml, sql, java, txt, ...) - support for template content transforming through for example XSLT, - authentication framework, - database query builders, - simple persistance layer, - fault-tolerant JDBC wrappers and connection pooling, - web-oriented database utilities, - central data repository, - cron-like scheduler, - locking framework, - configuration framework. The central part is the engine which formalizes all aspects of dynamic web development. It graciously solves all doubt, confusion and maintenance problems of HTTP's statelessness and liberal CGI interface.
