Alexandre Freire (USP)
Paulo Silveira (USP)

This paper describes the development of VRaptor, a framework that allows developers to create dynamic web applications quick and easily. Developed by Arca, VRaptor is free software, available under the Apache 2.0 license. We will present motivations behind Arca’s undertaking to create yet another web development framework for the J2EE specification. We will then describe the framework’s architecture and it’s usage patterns. We will justify our architectural decisions based on our main objectives: keeping the framework simple, clean, and easy to learn and use. We will briefly mention other free software tools and frameworks that interact with VRaptor in some way.
