Project Wonder is the largest open source collection of reusable WebObjects frameworks, applications and extensions. Also included in Project Wonder are deployment software and web server adapters. Project Wonder development is done within the Eclipse IDE with the WOLips plug-in tools.

Project Wonder started its life as a collection of open source frameworks build on top of Apple's WebObjects. Over time, Wonder became as large as WebObjects and not only provided complimentary frameworks but also provided fixes for WebObjects bugs, and development and deployment tools. Starting with Snow Leopard, Apple stopped providing releases of WebObjects outside Apple, but the community decided to continue development with Project Wonder and improvements are added to Wonder every week.

It provides a powerful and mature set of Object-Oriented frameworks for managing Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) to any JDBC-compliant database, Session Management, Undo/Redo/Revert, Ajax, Web Services, full Java Client applications, Rapid Application Development, file upload/download and many other popular internet and enterprise application technologies.
