Patrick will present his work on a new open source initiative named Able. Able is a combination of a library and quickstart template that aims to tightly integrate several modern Java frameworks: Hibernate (persistence), Stripes (web framework), Guice (core container), and DWR (AJAX). By taking advantage of libraries that embrace annotations and generics, Able simplifies Java web development and provides integration at several levels, including validation, transaction handling, and object lifecycle management.
