Salmon LLC is pleased to announce the release of SOFIA 2.2. SOFIA is a free, open source, model-view-controller framework that brings web application development functionality similar to ASP Dot Net Web Forms to the Java developer. Whereas most Java web frameworks focus on only one or two aspects of the MCV design pattern and provide little or no development tool support, SOFIA focuses on making web developers immediately more productive and so provides a complete end-to-end solution right out of the box. SOFIA consists of a Java class library of foundation code for building business logic and graphical user interfaces, a JSP tag library for HTML user interfaces and a Swing based component library for browser based rich clients. The package also includes optional plug-ins for Eclipse and IntelliJ Idea to make coding tasks easier and an optional Dreamweaver plug-in that provides a drag and drop WYSIWYG environment for visual development. SOFIA is designed for database applications and directly supports most major engines including: Oracle, MySQL, Sybase, MS SQL Server, DB2, Ingres, Postgres and Firebird. Version 2.2 adds the following new features:
1) Now develop with SOFIA in Linux via a new platform neutral install procedure. 2) A new Search Form, List Form and Detail Form implementation that allows you to build flexible and powerful search and data entry screens in minutes with no coding. 3) Support for JSR-168, the portlet API. Use your SOFIA JSP pages as portlets in any vendor�s JSR-168 compliant portal. Enhanced support for EJBs. 4) Numerous additional enhancements provided by the open source community.
