Projects / Scope


Scope is a framework built around an extensible implementation of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. It provides an easy-to-use Java library that can be used as a basis for component-oriented application development following the layered architecture detailed in Sun's J2EE and in Cheesman/Daniels: UML Components. Scope ships with three View implementations: one for Swing GUIs, one for servlet deployments using XML/XSLT, and another for JSP applications. It has been used commercially as a foundation for development of a VoiceXML UI.

      Release Notes: This is a minor release with bugfixes. Only cleaning up of documentation is needed before the 1.0 release. It uses the JAXP/TRAX APIs and ships with Saxon instead of Xerces/Xalan (although it works against those libraries too).
