I am not sure if I am posting to the right forum, but still.

I have the following task. I've got MySQL with data in it. A lot of data, which enters all the time, etc., etc.

Now, we need to create a number of screens, where user can:
- select few fileds, combine them, and search by them
- select few fields, and sort results in different ways
- result need to be shown in specific way, with specific list of fields to be shown
- it would be just perfect if there would be an ability to build some diagrams and graphics, but it's really just a nice addition, and not really required :-)

Can anybody suggest some J2EE framework as solution for my requirements? We can create everything ourselve, but it definately will waste a lot of time and effort. I don't see any reason to do that, in case if there is any ready solution.

Thanks for your help!

Personally I think JSF is really nice. The code is just so maintainable and easy. It is a MVC framework. There are many implemenations of JSF the one I used is call "myfaces"

My personal favorite web front end is Tapestry. Then put Spring and Hibernate on the backend.

No, you didn't get it. I do not need any MVC framework. Besides, I do not want to create these screens myself. I want some framework, with the help of which and templates I would be able to define "screens", and list of fields (from database) which will be showed on them, and by which (fields) I can do search and sorting. With sub-search, etc. That framework I need!

In that case, u need to buy a framework created out of available frameworks. That will definitely cost u some mulla(money). Since no one framework can be 100% suitable to specific projects requirements, it sure needs your efforts to get it going.

Its not easy to achieve a requirement with minimal lines of info like above. But vertical providers like SAP, Peoplesoft, WebMethods etc etc can help you out. They sure are making heck of money with these kind of ready made databases, tables, reports etc for specific situations/cases.

Olexiy,

Actually the problem that is occuring is that in Java we use Framework for more than just "Framework" meaning the Framework of Hibernate is used for Data Mapping between the database and Java Objects. the Spring Framework is for App Servers.

I have yet to see an actual "Framework", like what you are looking for written for Java. Not like the ones you would find for Visual Foxpro, or some other languages. I think the reason why is that there are not many Business applications using Swing. To be honest I would say Swing and Java for a rich client business application is a bad idea. I would use VB. The biggest problem is creating ad-hoc reports that get created quickly for the user to print.

If you find any, please let us know.

Thanks

Mark
