SlimWeb is an open-source lightweight framework for developing web applications in Java.

Design goals and overview[edit]

SlimWeb can aid you in building the controller components in your MVC-based web application. In this respect you can think of it as a replacement for Apache Struts but without all the XML configuration.

SlimWeb relies on convention and Java 5 annotations to infer all configuration information it needs, which makes it closer to Ruby on Rails and Turbogears/CherryPy than to Apache Struts.

SlimWeb doesn't have its own presentation layer (you can use JavaServer Pages for that) or model (commonly Hibernate POJOs, although you can use any model that suits your needs).
