Thanks for this framework. Really nice of you, but what is it doing? I could not figure out what the heck it is doing by either reading this article or going to your website. I have a rule of thumb: If I can't figure out what a framework is doing within 5 minutes, it is probably not worth investigating. You should at least have a simple example or quick guide or intro or something right at your website if you want to improve your download rate. So, please, provide a quick overview how this framework makes me more productive. Thank you!
Please also describe the comparison of this framework with existing ones (of similar nature).
A quick overview how this framework makes anyone more productive:
- Common services “out-of-box”, already tested and ready to start developing.
- Isolation of services' implementation complexity, to improve productivity
- Prototype application with examples of use of different services (openFrame-samples-2.0.zip at http://sourceforge.net/projects/openframe)
- Consistent, quality and stable Architecture, as it is the result of 4 years of constant evolution and testing.
- Implanted into multiple customers in Europe.
- Under the roadmap of openFrame, 2 is expected to incorporate key elements in improving the productivity of development on the framework:
- * Incorporation of RIA presentation layer, based on GWT and extjs (openFrame 2.1)
- Create a project openFrame 2.0 (with only 3 mouse clicks) deployed and operational.
- Configuration of services using forms PDE (avoiding tedious and endless XML)
- Outline view for services and Action from application.
* First openFrame IDE community version, an Eclipse plugin that allows you to:
As far as I know, it's a wrapper for Spring framework. Not sure if it abstracts Spring completely, in the way Spring abstracts other frameworks (e.g. Hibernate). If I want to use Spring or Struts or Hibernate I'd do it directly, not by adding more layers that in the end hurt performance.
That's not entirely true:
As far as I know, it's a wrapper for Spring framework. Not sure if it abstracts Spring completely, in the way Spring abstracts other frameworks (e.g. Hibernate).the openFrame services always provides an extra feature, for example (as you can see in some of the enhancements for release 2.0): scheduler service Lets deploy tasks in cluster , or the new control CAPTCHA in security service ... In short, I invite you to try it more thoroughly to see if you change your opinion.
