OpenSAGA is a model-centric Web application framework. It focuses on an abstract, non-technical application model that gets translated into an actual application by OpenSAGA. The model is mostly intentional and declarative instead of procedural. It describes what is there and how it's connected to other things instead of describing what to do. OpenSAGA aims to abstract the business concerns of an application away from its technical aspects. Currently, the model is edited as XML files assisted by an XML schema and an Eclipse plugin.
Dancer is a Perl framework for building Web applications with minimal effort. It started as a port of Ruby's Sinatra project, but has grown on its own path. A Dancer app can run as a standalone Web server or from any Web server using PSGI. It lets the user write an application with very few lines of code. It's powerful and flexible enough to knock up a simple Web site or Web service very quickly, and can scale to much larger projects. Building a Web application with Dancer is as easy as loading the library and defining route handlers. Dancer provides an elegant syntax for defining route handlers, can render views with a variety of template engines, supports static file serving, session support, and many more features.
SnappyJ is a Java library designed to ease Web 2.0 development. It was developed to take the pain out of developing Web pages that asynchronously reload sections of themselves. Performing these types of asynchronous reloads properly and professionally is harder than one might initially expect. The key challenges are loading Indication, support for browser history, error handling, code complexity, and having reloadable sections that interact with each other. SnappyJ completely eliminates these challenges, making it quick and easy to develop complex application-like Web sites.
Tine 2.0 is a Web-based groupware solution that focuses on usability and correctness. To achieve these goals, the project uses usability experts and covers most of the code by unit tests. It contains support for contacts, tasks, calendar, email, CRM, VoIP integration, a time tracker, ActiveSync, and a flexible rights management system.
Trek is both a Web browser and a new kind of social network. It allows its users to meet and interact by overlaying the Web with graphical avatars.

Web 2.0 has drastically shifted typical Web users from passive users to active developers. Web users share photos and videos, write blogs, and extend wiki pages. Yet end users need support to build their own applications on the Web. WEUP aims to provide the required tools for Web users to develop programmable artifacts on the Web. However, Web users have different domains of interest for development. Therefore, providing a one-off tool for all the Web users on the Web is not possible. WEUP provides a Web-based infrastructure for developing and sharing customizable EUP tools so that Web 2.0 communities can tailor them to create EUP integrated development environments according to their domain.
