Introducing Micro; a small Java framework for web development

Free Resource

Micro, for short: (μ) or Mu, is a modular Model View Controller framework (MVC Pull) for web development, and it was designed with simplicity in mind. Compared with other Java web frameworks, Micro doesn't force you to use the Java language for creating dynamic content, nor does it pigment your code with Java syntactic metadata or anything like that. With Micro you can start developing your web application right away even if the only content your site has is plain text or Markdown documents; you don't need Java for that. Micro uses Java under the hood, providing you the support that is specific to the web development: localization, template languages, scripting support for more advanced use, and a modular way to extend your dynamic content with controllers written in Java or using scripting, such as:Beanshell, server side Javascript(Rhino)JRuby and more.

Micro is distributed under the Apache 2 license and it is available as a Github repository. While still in beta, we believe you will find Micro interesting to work with.

Github: https://github.com/florinpatrascu/micro 

Documentation: http://micro-docs.simplegames.ca/  A Micro web application using Markdown for formatting the content; a work in progress and available as an open source project too.
