DynamiaTools is an application framework created by Dynamia Soluciones IT for building Java 11+ enterprise web applications fast and easy using standard design patterns, views descriptors for automatic UI generation, actions, services and modules. Based in Spring 5 for integration and infraestructure, ZK 9 for web views and JPA 2.
With DynamiaTools you can
- Create fully functional web applications without too much knowledge about Web Development.
- Write modular applications. Yes, you could create a module (jar file) and reuse it.
- It helps you to keep your project DRY.
- Automatically create CRUDs for you.
- Extends the framework with new modules, actions and services.
- Use HTML5 in your application thanks to ZK framework, this means you can use bootstrap, css3, and many HTML5 technologies
- Customize your application with themes or templates.
- Use MVC or MVVM
- Integrate with other Java framework
- Much more.
We start developing DynamiaTools 13 years ago as an internal utility library for our projects at Dynamia Soluciones IT.
We needed that our developers could create web applications fast without too much knowledge about specific frameworks or APIs like Spring or JPA.
First version was focus in many utility classes for hiding spring complexity, ZK apis, database connection, project configuration, page navigation, services and domain code integration and reusable simple modules. We did same stuff over and over again when we need create consistency user interfaces and actions across modules.
Then version 2.x focus on simplify and automatize user interface creation without the need to generate code
(that we think is easy to use but very hard to maintain). We created something called view descriptors,
instead of write UI code and layout components you just describe it using a simple YML plain file and,
the framework do its best to create the UI for you. On the other hand there are the most common thing
you do when create any application that use some data storage, the infamous CRUDs. We ended writing
the same kind of code for every simple entity. DynamiaTools create beautiful CRUDs for you.
You just need create an entity and your done.
Finally, version 3.x come to life, we reorganize, repackage and optimize everything. This version has better code, better design, better performance, new and great features, it’s not backwards compatible and, most important is the first version open source. Yes, we want to share our work with you.
Please use it, extend it and help us to build a great community around it. We will continue support this project always. Currently, we have 8 projects and more than 20 modules powered by DynamiaTools 3. As you can see this is not a new framework but is new in the open source world. This is not the only project we are going to open, we have more products to share.
Version 4.x will focus on support Java 11 and beyond, increase performance, integrate new frameworks and write much better documentations and demos.
Version 5.x support Java 17+, Spring Boot 3 and Hibernate 6.x
