What is AppFuse?

Icon

AppFuse is a full-stack framework for building web applications on the JVM. It was originally developed to eliminate the ramp-up time when building new web applications. Over the years, it has matured into a very testable and secure system for creating Java-based webapps.

Archetypes and Demos

AppFuse comes in a number of different flavors. It offers "basic" and "modular" archetypes. Basic archetypes have web services using CXF, authentication from Spring Security and features including signup, login, file upload and user management. Modular archetypes are similar to basic archetypes, except they have multiple modules which allows you to separate your services from your web project.

AppFuse provides archetypes for JSF, Spring MVC, Struts 2, Tapestry 5 and Wicket. You can see demos of these archetypes at http://demo.appfuse.org.
