If you’ve ever wanted to explore Naked Objects as a way of building cool, powerful business applications quickly — or if you’ve already tried Naked Objects but decided it wasn’t ready yet — you owe it to yourself to give it a try.
It was quite amazing. It reminded me of the first time I saw Dave Thomas give a Rails demo.
..so it's worth jumping over to his site to get a preview of the future.

Your framework is great. It is amazing.
I have just stumbled on your project today. It looks wonderful. I had
started a similar concept about 4 yrs ago, based on javabeans. Each bean to
have a editor/renderer, Lists of beans to have a collection editor, and the
whole thing you navigate based on the class of the bean. Support
relationship navigation. It was backed by hibernate. I have retired the
idea, not having the time or manpower to finish it. I have been thrilled to

such an effort. I whole-heartedly agree with this methodology. Most apps are
so redundant, and the model is the vital part. Model correctly and the app
should 'build itself'.
I am excited to spend some more time learning and diving into jmatter. If at
some point you need some help implementing something, I would be glad to
Again. This 'framework' looks great...
Anyway, still playing around with jmatter. Day 3 since discovering it. It delights me more and more!
..I would like to congratulate Eitan to his
Honestly, I think JMatter has some of the best documentation I've seen.
jMatter is an amazing framework. :)

Isn't that the concept behind J2EE? You write some "beans" that define your domain model and you get all this middleware stuff for free.
The only difference is that J2EE doesn't give you a huge amount of stuff, and is very complicated.
