I’ve launched Caladan, an open source webapp handler for the IxAS application server, providing a MVC (Model View Controller) framework to the IxAS application server. It is a component of Solarix iConnect Frameworks.
Being distributed with the Mozilla Public license, Caladan is free to use and distribute.
Caladan’s main purpose is to offer a Model View Controller (MVC) system for IxAS web applications, with a central configuration file for controlling the behaviour of the whole site.
- Uses Carthag applications platform
- Entirely OOP
- MVC system
- XML based configuration file
- XML configuration is cached
Caladan is covered by the Mozilla Public License.
You can download Caladan from the Carthag Projects download page.
I’ve released most of the components of PHP 5 iConnect architecture, based on my PHP 5 Carthag platform.
This architecture is similar in many ways to J2EE and offers: a platform, an enterprise application server (like EJB), a web application server (like Tomcat) and a portal server. Its runtime is based on PHP 5 and Apache.
Here is a better description of the iConnect architecture.
Here you can download iConnect containers and components.
