Java/JSF framework confusion[edit]

I think in the Java section the table listing Java frameworks does not accurately reflect reality. The confusion centers around JSF and is two-fold:

  • JSF itself is not a software product, but a specification for such a product. The license column therefor doesn't make a lot of sense and the version number is not exactly the same as the version number for the other listed frameworks. The two actual implementations (Oracle Mojarra and Apache MyFaces) have real licenses and version numbers more in line with other entries.
  • The table lists several entries that by themselves are not frameworks, but component libraries and/or extensions for JSF. This is in particularly true for the entry "icefaces".

I'm not entirely sure how to best resolve this. One option would be to add a sub-section of Java called "JSF" with entries like icefaces, richfaces, oracle adf, and implementations mojarra and myfaces.

PHP Frameworks[edit]

Some discussion on the Web Server requiremenets for PHP frameworks would be very useful. For example, CakePHP seems to be most happy on Apache with mod_rewrite and very difficult to run on IIS. Most frustrating for folks who are stuck with a hosted IIS service. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:51, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

List of content management frameworks has some PHP Frameworks that are not on this article's list. --AlastairIrvine (talk) 07:03, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

Also regarding PHP Frameworks: Someone seems to be deleting PHP frameworks big style, although its different usernames it is always the same (wrong) reason on delete pages: "Did a search: found no books/only books of the developers and almost nothing else". This is wrong for at least: DooPHP, Lavarel, Kohana. Those all are quite good frameworks that should be in the list and already were in wikipedia once but have been removed. For me that looks quite a bit as if someone tries to eliminate competition. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:02, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Need to add the Laravel PHP framework. It's up to version 4 and becoming more popular. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:26, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Candidate for inclusion in open source PHP - --Thistledowne (talk) 18:49, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Symphony is a CMS. not a web application framework. Symfony is however already listed. Greenman (talk) 07:52, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Haskell frameworks[edit]

This is the list of Haskell web frameworks. Three of them (Happstack, Snap, Yesod) have feature tables. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bogdan.kulynych (talkcontribs) 10:04, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

remove obscure frameworks?[edit]

Should the entries for ExtJs and Helma be removed? They don't have their own article. (talk) 17:51, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Why is WebPy not included in the list?[edit]

Real Studio[edit]

Real Studio has offered a web framework for development of web based applications since 2011. Is this something that should be added here?

Web Framework Performance[edit]

Should the TechEmpower Framework Benchmarks be included here somewhere? Seems like they cover the performance of different frameworks pretty well? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:24, 8 May 2013 (UTC)


didn't see reference to Apache Tomcat. Shjacks45 (talk) 19:06, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Comparison criteria : security framework[edit]

To my mind, all comparison criteria are not very clear. For example, what does "security framework" stand for? It would be really better to add a clear definition of each point. Dduuhh (talk) 17:04, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Add more Lua web frameworks and (optionally) remove Kepler[edit]

There are several new Lua based web frameworks that are more relevant than Kepler nowadays. Kepler is actually discontinued and pretty old!

Take a look at for more info.

Drupal is missing from the table 1.10: General/ PHP[edit]

It's included in the table 2:7. I know enough to notice this but not enough to fix it. Thank you! Thinkadoodle (talk) 18:22, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Added Go[edit]

I added some popular web frameworks for Golang. Is it worth redlinking them? They seem to have some traction, but I don't know if they're widely used enough to merit individual articles. fi (talk) 06:53, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
