Pajes in a Light Weight Servlet Framework
A J2EE environment may not suit all situations or all developers. A simpler approach using a light-weight servlet framework can provide a simpler, smaller and faster environment with shorter development cycles.
A light-weight servlet framework approach will still involve good object design practice and separation of presentation and business logic is usually beneficial, but the use of EJB technology is not the only way to achieve good design.
Many tools and components, both proprietary and open source, are available to assist developers taking a light-weight approach. The Pajes environment available at this site contains a light-weight servlet environment which you may opt to use.
  
  The Pajes Light Weight Servlet Environment
The servlet framework classes offered in the Pajes download are oriented toward application development involving the use of relational databases - which probably covers about 95% of developed applications.
This environment is complete with two ommissions: an HTTP servlet environment and JDBC drivers. There are many choices available for both of these components and we leave the selection of these to you.
What is provided is a small, simple, efficient and quite sophisticated database oriented application server framework.
There are only a few moving parts in the Pajes servlet framework, but they are all you need. We find that any other specialised services we require can be found in the open source world or in the proprietary development toolsets and simply plugged in as required.
What you get in the standard download is:
  • Database pooling with a few niceties
  • An object-relational mapping layer
  • Authentication and permissions facilities
  • Jenerator, a Pajes application to generate "infrastructure" classes for an application
