What is Melati? (quick read)

Melati allows you to define the fields and records for you application in
one place.  These are then immediately available to all parts of your

o - your template engine
o - your business objects
o - your database

This considerably simplifies (and speeds up) web application development.
Try it :)

What is Melati (more detail):

Melati is a tool for building Java-programmed websites backed by a database.
It provides the following features:

o- a generic database administration system, allowing the site manager to
edit both the contents and the structure of the database through a simple
web based interface.

o - rapid templating mechanism, using "templets" (sub-templates) for
rendering interface elements (eg HTML input boxes, dropdowns), and providing
an easy interface with persistent objects.

o - close integration with the Webmacro templating engine.

o - cookie-based or HTTP-based login provoked automatically by access
control failure.

o - full integration with POEM (Persistent Object Engine for Melati). POEM
    o -industrial-strength open source object database technology,
delivering ODMG 3.0 compliant Java support.
    o - an API where the database to be seen as a collection of Java
objects, via a (genuinely!) easy-to-use transparent persistence layer on top
of JDBC.
    o - a low level security model allowing restrictions to be placed on
tables, rows and fields.

Melati's design builds on our experience with previous systems we have
deployed successfully on a number of commercial sites: we feel that it
enables a particularly elegant and productive way of working.

Melati is released under a dual ASF Style / GPL license (the same approach
as WebMacro), and is currently being used on several commercial projects.
