AppFuse 2.2.1 Released!

The AppFuse Team is pleased to announce the release of AppFuse 2.2.1. This release includes upgrades to all dependencies to bring them up-to-date with their latest releases. Most notable are Hibernate 4, Struts 2.3.7, Apache CXF 2.7.0 and Spring Security 3.1.3. In addition, we've integrated HTML5, Twitter Bootstrap, jQuery and replaced Compass with Hibernate Search. Last but not least, we've added full support for Java 7 and integrated many security improvements. For more details on specific changes see the release notes.

What is AppFuse?
AppFuse is a full-stack framework for building web applications on the JVM. It was originally developed to eliminate the ramp-up time when building new web applications. Over the years, it has matured into a very testable and secure system for creating Java-based webapps.

Demos for this release can be viewed at Please see the QuickStart Guide to get started with this release.

A number of blog posts were written about features that went into this release while it was being developed:

If you have questions about AppFuse, please read the FAQ or join the mailing list. If you find any issues, please report them on the users mailing list.

Thanks to everyone for their help contributing patches, writing documentation and participating on the mailing lists.

We greatly appreciate the help from our sponsors, particularly Atlassian, Contegix and JetBrains. We highly recommend using the new IntelliJ IDEA 12 for developing web applications.

I read Quick Start but I'm dummie, so I cant get it to work. I get several errors, one to one and cannot resolve it. I work with SQL Server, and I don't know where to config the database setting. So mvn jetty:run get too much error. Do you have a full tutorial about that? The Quick Start is not easy to do if I dont install MySQL. My Goal is create simple CRUD site to my SQL Database. But it has too many tables and rows that I can't create myself.

@Linh - I'd recommend subscribing to AppFuse's user mailing list to get help with questions like this. You can also post to Stackoverflow with the "AppFuse" tag. I'll see your questions and try my best to answer them in either location.

@Matt: OK, I make it work with basic, not modular. I'll make future question in the right place.
