OpenXava is a software utilizing AJAX Java Framework. It is designed to be used with the rapid development of different enterprise web applications. OpenXava simplifies the application development p...rocess by allowing you to get an application production-ready by only writing domain classes in Java.
There's also a short learning curve for the use of OpenXava. Because you don't need to learn complicated scripts, all you need to know is how to write simplified Java classes. There's an OpenXava bundle created for a rapid startup. From there, all you need to learn is how to navigate the interface itself.
The applications you create are fully featured. There's an AJAX based user interface that requires no page reloading. You can use list mode for your application, which has paging, filtering, ordering, column addition and removal, Excel exporting, PDF reports, charts, cards format, and other features. Detail mode is another option and includes frames, editors, tabs, dialogues, responsive layout features, and more. It all depends on where you need to focus your design.
In addition to the original web interface, there's also a mobile user interface that you can use. You can sync this to the web interface to work on the same code from anywhere that you have phone access.
