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