Mentawai Web Framework - Mentawai Overview

Mentawai Web Framework - Mentawai Overview: "Mentawai's programmatic approach to configuration, gives you total freedom, flexibility and power inside your configuration files.

This framework has some interesting ideas - such as programmatic configuration instead of using XML files, because although it can be beneficial to be able to quickly change a property file or xml file, often a full deploy is used to ensure that live application is in a known state, so as long as your build scripts compile all your code, you can gain the benefits of using purely Java in your IDE, and maybe someday I will learn to use a full stop
