Hi-Framework Is a light Java Framework that allows developers to write fully Ajax web applications combining the power of a Java back-end to a rich client-side powered by AngularJS.
For sure, there are plenty frameworks out there, and a framework is a really simple thing to build if you think about it.. But what should make us "Gurus" is not the fact that we built a framework, because honestly, anyone can do it. But instead the fact that we built something that is beautiful, useful and most important : that solves a real problem.
If you are happy with the Java Web Frameworks you have been using (ZK, Vaadin, etc), you don't have to stop using them. Because we don't want people trying Hi-Framework just because it's new. But... Because it's "Hi".
Being "Hi", means :
- Giving you control over your web stack, while offering you the convenient support
- Being safely fully AJAX
- Handing you the same HTML, CSS and JS you always knew
- Providing you tools and features that create the perfect marriage of JavaEE and HTML5.
Among its vast tools and features, you can take Frontiers as an example.
Hi-Framework does not sell the "develop faster" propaganda.
That's because faster is becoming messy, ugly, unfriendly for users and as we label it : Just working.
Instead we give you the power to control your web stack and encourage you to try the best design techniques/patterns so that you can build apps for great user experiences, apps with beautiful user interfaces, apps that users wont have any other way to call them, rather than : Awesome.
In a single shot: The Purpose of Hi-Framework is to empower developers that are engaged in delivering Awesome web apps using the Java Stack.
If not satisfied yet, we also believe Hi is the first fully AJAX request-based Java EE Framework in the world. So you can just stick with that.
Thanks a lot for your feedback.
I'm sure your weren't the only one with that concern!
