AppFuse is a full-stack framework for building web applications on the JVM. It was originally developed to eliminate the ramp-up time found when building new web applications for customers. Over the years, it has matured into a very testable and secure system for creating Java-based webapps.
At its core, AppFuse is a project skeleton, similar to the one that's created by the IDE when clicked through a wizard to create a new web project. AppFuse comes in a number of different flavors. To optimize and simplify the experience as a user, AppFuse created a number of different archetypes (a.k.a. starter projects). There are currently three types of AppFuse Archetypes: light, basic and modular.
Light archetypes are bare-bones, basic archetypes contain User Management and Security and modular archetypes contain "core" and "web" modules and are ideal for creating projects that have a re-usable backend. One should change the groupId to match the preferred package name and the artifactId to match the project's name.
The Foundational frameworks in AppFuse: Bootstrap and jQuery,Maven, Hibernate, Spring and Spring Security,Java 7, Annotations, JSP 2.1, Servlet 3.0,Web Frameworks: GWT, JSF, Struts 2, Spring MVC, Tapestry 5, Wicket,JPA Support.
