The Interesting Bits

The File Object Framework (FOF) is a Java framework meant to meet the needs of the lightweight Java application that doesn't need a database back end but still needs to persist data in a tabled format. The FOF doesn't persist data in cryptic binary serialization or incur the verbosity of large data sets in XML or JSON. The FOF provides a reliable and consistent object to file mapping layer to persist data in tables. Quickly build out business objects and business object managers that plug into the framework. Open your application data in MS Excel with ease and move on! Start focusing on the UI. More information about the FOF can be found on the projects page.
