Subject Re: [ANN] RIFE v0.8.2 released with Derby support
Date Thu, 06 Jan 2005 18:16:42 GMT
Hi Jean,

thanks for adding us to that page. "Web Application Framework" is the 
best category, since that's RIFE's main aim. I think the major 
difference is that some frameworks are end-to-end and others focus on 
the web part. RIFE is end-to-end, so you can also use each 
sub-framework independently, which blurs the positioning. If you have 
an Object-Relational or Database Abstraction category it would fit in 
well there too, but if only one has to be chosen, "Web Application 
Framework" fits best.

Best regards,
