Hello,
I am looking for a J2EE framework that will allow me to maintain the GUI fields, parameters from databse like display text, type of control(Text field, combo box etc) and generate the GUI based on the data in DB.
Is there any j2ee framework that will allow me to do this?
Thanks

I am skeptical why would you want to do that, may be u want to autogenerate the jsp or tags based on that.
This kind of persistance of fields etc are more utilized on the EJB side using metadata etc, but can not see performance advantages or auto generation advantages on the client side. At the same time wouldn't this be a maintenance problem to go this path.

Hi,
I don't think there would be a maintenance issue. Also I have a requirement that the administrator of the application should be able to add and delete the fields from the screen, assign access privilege to each field etc.
For such requirement I think storion the GUI details in DB would be better solution.
