My document “Application Frameworks for the New Web” is now available to subscribers of the Gartner for Technical Professionals content. The analysis defines four very broad categories of Web application frameworks:
- Portals and Content Management Systems (such as SharePoint, Drupal, DotNetNuke)
- Traditional MVC frameworks (such as Struts, JSF)
- Convention over Configuration frameworks (such as Ruby on Rails, Grails, Spring Roo)
- Event-driven frameworks: (such as Node.js, netty, Meteor)
I’ll be hosting an analyst user roundtable at this year’s Catalyst Conference to discuss the merits and drawbacks of the single-page web application paradigm, and will be curious to hear the opinions of conference attendees.
