Hi,

I am just trying some Rapid Application Development tools available in the market for minimising developer efforts.I have created some sample applications in both Spring Roo & Seam.But still I am not clear about the best one.

1)Which is the best Rapid Application Development tool / framework available in the open source market?

2)Which is good - Spring Roo or Jboss Seam in this segment or any other?

Please advice

That is a very subjective question. Which do you have more experise in Seam or Spring MVC? Both have good features for building apps. Personally, I really like Grails, but you have to learn Groovy and how they do things.

I have worked with both rads...
Personally, I think that at this point Spring Roo has much more to offer to the developer.


1) Project definition based on an effective and elegant shell -ide and standalone.
2) It uses Modular Jave via an OSGI container so it is straight forward to extend if required.
3) It scaffolds ready-to-run web apps easy to customize to your requirements all the way to production.
4) Powerful database reverse engineering for directly creating entities.
5) At the end it is pure Java so you don't need to learn anything to start using it.

And much more...

Here there are some links if you decide to learn more on SR: http://viralpatel.net/blogs/author/jose-delgado,

Thank you
