Hi all,

please give me some ideas for new application frameworks. I am searching for a project idea for my final yr project in the degree. I thought of developing some application framework using java.

What will be a valuable application framework which is currently not available? even if one is available can we add more features than what it supports?

these Frameworks will help the Software Engineering community to improve their productivity IMO. so, pls give some example of such frameworks that i can build for my final yr project....

Thanks for all responses

There are a lot of frameworks out there already... I am not sure we need one more, but you never know. :-)

Building a good framework is a huge undertaking that should not be started lightly. Your time would be better served donating work to one of the pre-existing open-source frameworks (or other projects). This will benefit the rest of the software community and it wouldn't hurt to have something like that on a resume.

You should look into:
Spring Framework (http://www.springframework.org)
Struts (http://struts.apache.org)
Jakarta (http://jakarta.apache.org)

... to name only a very few...

Good luck and this helps.
