    Note that the url is http://zkoss.org - the link resolves to a TSS url, which ain't right. :)

    I too can attest that it is a great framework. I worked with ZK for a few years and it is easy to use and the forums are active. Having said that, what finally made me reconsider using it was the fact that it is GPL software.
    It's a license choice that, I know, the ZK team continually reviews based upon feedback from the community and I don't fault anyone for wanting to make some money for what they do. If I were to start an open-source project to create a database, or an app server for that matter, I'd probably choose GPL. But only because the GPL is well-suited for such things. The same can't be said for component libraries and code frameworks. It inhibits growth. People hesitate to adopt. They wait for another open-source project to come along with the same functionality, with a more liberal license, and they flock to it. I wish the ZK team nothing but the best and they really do have a great product, but I am still hoping they reconsider their licensing. Mike

    Since ZK started Online Training, well it maybe will influence a more liberal license. Simple, elegant and fast Now is standard at our company. No more JSF (SUN, MyFaces, IceFaces), Wicket, Strut.

    I appreciate the rich set of components and overall architecture. But what bothers me most is the perceived responsiveness - in comparison with, say, GWT.
