👋 Hello!

Welcome to the Jodd - a unique, alternative world of Java :) You can find here some micro-frameworks and some handy tools. Nothing more, nothing less.

Jodd = tools + ioc + mvc + db + aop + tx + json + html

The official web-site:


Jodd v6 is the maintained version, working on Java 8 and 11. The following components are promoted to version 6:

The decision which component is promoted is based on the Maven Central Repo statistics.

Version v5 contains remaining libraries and frameworks. They are in maintenance mode.

Sorry, I can only do so much.
