SwiXml, is a small GUI generating engine for Java applications and applets. Graphical User Interfaces are described in XML documents and applets. Graphical User Interfaces are described in XML documents that are parsed at runtime and rendered into javax.swing objects.
Luxor is a free, open-source XML UI Language (XUL) toolkit in released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) that lets you build released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) that lets you build UIs using XML and includes an ultra-light weight, multi-threaded web server, a portal engine, a template engine (Velocity), a scripting interpreter (Python) and more.
Thinlet is a GUI toolkit, a single Java class, parses the hierarchy and properties of the GUI, handles user interaction, and calls hierarchy and properties of the GUI, handles user interaction, and calls business logic. Separates the graphic presentation (described in an XML file) and the application methods (written as Java code). Its compressed size is 38KB, and it is LGPL licensed. Thinlet runs with Java 1.1 (browsers default JVM) to 1.4, Personal Java, and Personal (Basis) Profile. Swing isnt required.
Beryl XML GUI library
The Beryl XML GUI library was written to ease the development of graphical user interfaces using Swing on Java. It lets you store user graphical user interfaces using Swing on Java. It lets you store user interfaces as XML markup. This will help you avoid unnecessary clutter in your source - Swing code mixed with application logic can become a troublesome and hard to read mess as the application size increases. The library comes with a visual component builder, which makes development a breeze.
SwingML is an effort to create a markup language to render in a web browser JFC/Swing based graphical user interfaces. web browser JFC/Swing based graphical user interfaces.
The jXUL project is an open source project to integrate the XUL language into the Java Platform language into the Java Platform
WidgetServer is a Java/XML server-side GUI-framework which enables an application to run as either a monolithic Swing app, a enables an application to run as either a monolithic Swing app, a client/server Swing app, or as a Web app without any change. It includes a mixed deployment mode, which supports one server to serve Swing clients and Web clients at the same time. The framework uses XML or a single java API to define an applications GUI independently from target client technology. It provides a common widget-based, object-oriented programming interface for Web and Swing GUIs, which prevents the developer from struggling with HTML and HTTP or with the internals of Swing. The project includes a GUI builder that is based on the frameworks functionality.
gui4j is a framework for describing Java Swing GUIs completely in XML. The graphical user interface is created dynamically based on the XML. The graphical user interface is created dynamically based on the XML definitions. Each GUI window is associated with exactly one top-level XML file. Each XML file can dynamically include other XML files to support complex GUI definitions. Each XML file is associated with a java object that acts as both a Controller and a Model for the GUI. There is a strong layer separation between the GUI and the Controller: GUI definitions in the XML files can access all Java methods of the Controller, but Java methods cannot access any GUI elements directly. Events are used to trigger changes in the GUI.
XAMJ is an XML UI and markup language tightly integraded with Java. It is deployed in a similar manner to JNLP without the need to Java. It is deployed in a similar manner to JNLP without the need to compile or package the application.
JAXX enables you to write simple XML files describing components and their interactions, and then compile those XML files into ordinary and their interactions, and then compile those XML files into ordinary Java classes. JAXX features extremely powerful scripting and data binding, CSS stylesheet support, and many other advanced features.
WAZAABI is an open source project that delivers significant benefits for building Eclipse RCP based Java and J2EE rich client benefits for building Eclipse RCP based Java and J2EE rich client applications. Wazaabi includes a GUI framework that brings XUL to Eclipse RCP plug-in developpers and a set of components that link the client-side XUL based viewers and forms to server-side business components.
CookSwing is a library which builds Java Swing GUI from XML documents. It supports all Swing components, all Swing LayoutManager documents. It supports all Swing components, all Swing LayoutManager (including JGoodies Forms layout), all listeners, all Swing borders (including compound borders), and internationalization and localization. XML include for templated UI layout is supported as well. CookSwing also goes beyond merely Swing since many Swing components require fairly complex configuration parameters. Java binding with components generated by CookSwing is very easy. One of the primary strength CookSwing over other XUL toolkit is being easily extensible. It has a modular design and offers great debugging capabilities. CookSwing is also well documented with its innovative tagdoc, and having lots of examples and demos.
The XUI tagset is an XML format that describes graphical user interfaces. On its own this tagset isnt terrifically useful. With an interfaces. On its own this tagset isnt terrifically useful. With an application programming interface however, it becomes a powerful cross-platform and cross-language scripting language allowing the creation of GUIs without actual program code.
UIHierarchy is a library that facilitates creation of user interfaces. The main idea is to enforce the mental picture of the interfaces. The main idea is to enforce the mental picture of the containment hierarchy of GUI components by writing the code in the same logical way. Code gets much easier to understand, much shorter, and easy to maintain. Additionaly, UIHierarchy can manipulate resulting components hierarchies in a powerful way. [It is a UI helper library, but no category of this site really match. UIHierarchy has a small XML module though but it is not the main focus.
