Melati is a tool for building Java-programmed websites backed by a database.
It provides the following features:
o - A generic database admin system, allowing the site manager to edit both
the contents and the structure of the database through a simple web based
o - An object layer where the database is seen as a collection of Java
o - Transparent cacheing of commonly used records, selections and
"computed objects", via a (genuinely!) easy-to-use transparent persistence
layer on top of JDBC.
o - A low level access control system based on a user/group/capability
model, allowing restrictions to be placed on tables, rows and fields.
o - Cookie-based or HTTP-based login provoked automatically by access
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, though template engine
independance is duie in the next release.
