CB2 is a free light-weight, while complete framework for server-side Java development. It consists of a software library, development environment, and a number of architectural and stylistic approaches. CB2 is intended to provide developers with a comprehensive software infrastructure for creating Java applications. The most common case of CB2 usage is building data-driven web-applications.
Although CB2 has been published just recently, it has been developped and actively used by its creators for more than two years. By now, CB2 is very stable and mature product, which is being used on some complex large-scale commercial projects.
As a framework, CB2 provides software developers with a complete set of infrastructural services, it also defines the application's architecture and a few types of software components that are created by developers and "plugged-in" to the predefined structure to implement the application's logic. In a sense, CB2 is an alternative to such heavy-weight technologies as EJB covering virtually all their practically useful functionality, while being much more light-weight and flexible. See more information about CB2 and its philosophy in the CB2 User Manual available in the Documentation section on this site.
