Hi ranchers,

Hope many/some of you are aware of the latest/emerging technolgy/solutions " Software as a service " abbreviated as SaaS.

Iam working as a java web developer using J2EE, Struts technologies since 2 1/2 years.

Iam interested to learn SaaS, so can anyone of you suggest me a open sourced java framework for SaaS so that i can learn myself.


Thanks in advance for your time,
Venkataguru Mitta

I suspect SaaS is too wide ranging a concept to deserve a "framework" - there are just so many technologies that can be used.

When Java first got started, Applets were the method of choice for giving a user an interface to services running somewhere else.

Now there are so many options that I dont thing a single framework is possible.

You're starting at the wrong end. The main point of SaaS is in the second "S" - service. You need to start with a concept of what kind of service you want to deliver, and how it's going to get delivered. Then you can start thinking about how to implement it. Two common approaches are web apps and web services - for which any number of frameworks are available already.
