Please help me to find the right technology stack

Hi All,

Till today I have developed applications, using Oracle OAF(J2EE MVC based faremwork) and Oracle ADF using Jdeveloper. Now I want to develop a web application using any of the open source technologies. As most of my development experience is in OAF and ADF only, where I have mostly done things in drag and drop environment, now I stuck with which
framework to use(GWT,Seam,Spring) which can provide some similar kind of Drag and Drop(wysiwyg) RAD development environment. My web application will have following features:-
1) Online collaboration
2) Lot of search pages
3) Few CURD web pages.
4) web application will have good,flexible look and feel UI.
5) Learning curve should be easy
Please help me to find the right technology stack..?

Regards,
Vikram

JSF using Netbeans maybe? ADF is based on JSF. But in general, I'm not a fan of using drag and drop development...

There's no "right" technology stack--only "right for you" (or, more commonly, "right for your employer" :)

If you're looking for a close match to what you're used to then Nathan is probably right about a JSF stack (perhaps using Seam, which is about the only way I'd use JSF--although the new stuff might make that less necessary), but I'm not a huge fan of JSF, or DnD development, either.

Hm, I'm no DnD guy. Flex might pique your interest. I was thinking to use Flex in my next project, but the problem is Flex Builder is not free. You can use Flex to build UI and integrate to Java back-end using BlazeDS. If you want to use Spring, Spring portfolio has Spring BlazeDS Integration component.

Try Wicket <-> Spring <-> Hibernate for 3 tiers. Once you have developed with Wicket, you'd be surprised how easy web development can be ... it can be addictive.


Trilochan.

Addendum : On Flex, yes, it looks good in the end (and plus factor going for it is that Spring makes it easy), but your applications may not work universally (mobile platforms for example? ;) ).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
