Vroom Framework is Java based web application development framework. It is written using J2EE 1.4 specifications to make compatible with all Java EE 1.4 compliant web/application servers.


Vroom Framework was designed and developed by Farrukh Ijaz s/o Mohammad Riaz in March 2008. It was originally designed with a concept of altering the source code of web pages at run-time based on a configuration file (vroom-config.xml) to create binding between the HTML DOM events and server side Java methods.

Vroom-2, which is the latest version of Vroom Framework, has been revamped to eliminate all the limitations of the first version.


The framework consists of following elements:

  • Core API: The API of the framework is packaged as vroom.jar which contains filter, controller, and other helper classes. The filter and controller is configured by defining entries in web.xml file of the web application.
  • JavaScripts: There is one JavaScript file named vroom.js which is part of the framework but it is not packaged as vroom.jar file. It is placed in \WEB-INF\ folder of the web application. The reason for keeping it outside the package is to provide the developer an opportunity to improve the existing functions as well as to include additional functions if required.
  • Configuration File: Once the framework is set up, a configuration file is maintained for the web application to instruct the framework how to perform certain actions. The file is typically named as vroom-config.xml. It is placed in \WEB-INF\ folder and specified in the config-file attribute of the filter definition in web.xml.
