Apache Pivot – Build RIA in Java

I was going through Apache’s web site and I read the news about Apache Pivot. Apache Pivot  is a Java alternative of Adobe Flex/Flash and Microsoft Silverlight.

In December 2009, Pivot has been declared a top-level Apache project and Pivot 1.4 is the latest version which is available for download.

About Pivot, this is what Apache has to say:

Apache Pivot is an open-source platform for building rich internet applications in Java. It combines the enhanced productivity and usability features of a modern RIA toolkit with the robustness of the Java platform. Pivot applications are written using a combination of Java and XML and can be run either as an applet or as a standalone, optionally offline, desktop application.

Like other modern development platforms, Pivot provides a comprehensive set of foundation classes that together comprise a “framework”. These classes form the building blocks upon which more complex and sophisticated applications can be built.
