Richard Pawson of Naked Objects offers brief history of the framework and introduction to Naked Objects for .NET. Naked objects can be seen as Domain Driven Design taken to the extreme. With proper annotation, this framework can automatically generate a matching presentation layer in Java or .NET.
Naked Objects is an architectural pattern and a framework for developing applications where domain objects takes a central role. Naked Objects recently released version 3.0 with support for Java 1.5, injection, an alternate UI, Hibernate object store, integrated security and contributed actions. InfoQ took the opportunity to speak with Richard Pawson, inventor of the Naked Objects pattern.
The jMatter framework, Eitan Suez' modern implementation of the Naked Objects Pattern using Swing, Hibernate, and deployed with Java WebStart, has been open-sourced this week. jMatter takes a domain model and then auto-produces 2-tier workgroup apps (Swing front-ends that talk to rdbms back-ends) intended to be used in a LAN or VPN environment.
