I just put up a new version of the Niggle Web Application Framework.
This release is almost entirely focussed on documentation. The tutorials
have been improved, the javadoc is more complete, and there are additional
docs on subjects such as: how to subclass certain classes, how to write
XML config files.
Another significant improvement is that the XML configuration files now
have a formal DTD and you can validate against this DTD separately.
In general, I am pretty happy with this release, and barring something
extraordinary, the next release will be labelled 1.0 final.
Niggle is a web application framework based around the Java 2 and the
2.2 Servlet API. The big practical advantage of Niggle is that
servlets written on top of the framework tend to be phenomenally
terse. For example, as proof of the pudding, I have included a free
message-board servlet that is fairly full featured -- tree view of
discussions, signup/login/sessions, storage of articles and user info
in an RDBMS -- in about 600 lines of Java code. (You can see this
example running with your own eyes at
This terseness is achieved basically because the "messy stuff" gets
externalized -- the presentation layer in HTML page templates, the
data persistence layer in XML configuration files. Once you have these
external files set up, a lot of stuff (validation of data, etc.)
happens automatically inside the framework without any need for you to
