Melati is a tool for building Java-programmed websites backed by a database. It provides a generic database admin system, an object layer where the database is seen as a collection of Java objects, and transparent caching of commonly used records, selections and "computed objects", via a transparent persistence layer on top of JDBC. Melati also provides low level, fine-grained access control through capabilities, and a rapid templating mechanism, using "templets" (sub-templates) for rendering interface elements (e.g. HTML input boxes, dropdowns). Melati is closely integrated with the popular WebMacro templating engine.
