The Codist asks what open source frameworks we use. Now, he says frameworks, but it looks more like libraries and utilities. Which is fine by me as I generally tend to avoid the larger frameworks, and just as The Codist himself wrote my own web framework for my regular site.
So, without further ado, here’s some regulars:
- Jetty – good stuff
- c3p0 – JDBC pooling
- log4j – logging, I don’t really like it, but…
- jgroups – data distribution/messaging
- JBoss Serialization – for high throughput servers
- JBoss Cache – data replication
- Mina – network IO framework
- XFire – for all your SOAP needs
- HSQLDB – just works, but I’ll probably check out H2 soon
- Jaxen – very good xpath engine
- Hibernate – ORM, because it is more or less standard
- GNU Trove – primitive fast collections
- Wicket – if I really must code an web UI
But I must admit, for my home coding I use a lot of my private libraires, I’ve got my own XML API and XPath engine. My own commons collection, UUID API, simple object -> XML lib, logging, email API, etc.
