Hi everyone. I'm a big Java proponent and the founder of a web service called iGradePlus. iGradePlus is a very large, java-based, web application for educators. It was launched about 9 years ago. As someone who is very proficient with Java and extremely productive when using it, I find trying to develop web application UIs in HTML, CSS, and Javascript to be inefficient at best and generally unproductive and unpleasant. I also despise Javascript and Javascript-based frameworks. So when I started developing iGradePlus I wanted to use a Java-based framework to develop it, but couldn't find one that worked exactly the way I wanted it to work. Thus began the development of the Oorian web application framework.

Oorian is Java-based framework for creating dynamic, interactive, data-driven web applications purely in Java allowing you to leverage all the benefits of object-oriented design in your applications front-end to back-end.  Your entire web application, including the UI, can be written in Java without the need for maintaining separate HTML, CSS, and/or Javascript code.

Development began on Oorian around 7 years ago to support the development of iGradePlus. It has been in production use for 6 years serving as the basis for iGradePlus which now consists of hundreds of unique web pages and over 500k lines code.

Since Oorian has matured and proved to be a reliable and practical framework for developing web applications, I have decided to make it publicly available; however since pretty much all my time is consumed by iGradePlus, I wanted to test the waters for interest in Oorian before investing any significant time into preparing it for public consumption.  If Oorian sounds like something that you might be interested in using, please visit oorian.com and check out some of the code samples and the overview for how it works and let us know if it's something you'd be interested in trying.  Thanks.
