Hi All,

At my work we are moving away from the legacy platform towards J2EE.
But before starting any application development, we are planning to build a framework, which will come handy during the actual application development.

Just want to know your ideas about the what all components (infrastructure / toolkit/ utility classes) are typically useful.

We thought of following :
1) Application Logging component
2) Application Configuration (XML based config files)
3) User Login/Access Control Component
4) Job Scheduler Components
etc

Don't build 1, 3 and 4. Buy them commercially or use an open source version. For instance, (1) is done quite well by Log4J. (4) can be done by commercial packages available from several vendors (both WebSphere and Weblogic offer this functionality in some form in one of their offerings). Don't reinvent the wheel.

For the job scheduling component I suggest you take a look at Quartz, an open source job scheduling system.
