My 2 cents:

1) instead of self-made log facade

2) data/business/entity objects "binding".
Now Click application source code looks like this:

Form personForm = new Form();
TextField srcAddr name = 
DateField birth = 
Select status = 

onInit: load Person, copy data from Person to Form

copy data from Form to Person, save Person

With binding


same should work for any control without form (read only binding - like
Table now),

where Control name is Data object property name (or better ongl expression)

after onGet/onPost is form is valid then auto copy not read only enabled
form fields to data object

3) JSR-303 Bean Validation API for these data objects

4) freemarker as default template engine ;-)

5) useful ideas from others frameworks (I don't know which exactly)
