Pivot - an open-source platform for building rich internet applications in Java.
Pivot combines the enhanced productivity and usability features of a modern RIA toolkit with the robustness of the Java platform. Pivot applications are written using a combination of Java and XML and can be run either as an applet or as a standalone, optionally offline, desktop application.
This is the first phase on incubation, needed to start the project at Apache.
