Apache Avalon core framework for component programming

Apache Avalon provides a complete platform for component programming including a core framework, utilities, tools, components and containers. By using key design patterns such as Inversion of Control IoC and Separation of Concerns SoC, Avalon achieves a number of advantages over traditional object oriented programming frameworks

  • No implementation lock
  • Low coupling between components
  • Component life cycle management
  • Configuration management and easy to use API
  • Component meta-data framework and tools
  • Service dependency management
  • Embeddable containers for standalone, J2EE and web environments

The Avalon Framework API and Implementation consists of interfaces that define relationships between commonly used application components, best-of-practice pattern enforcements, and several lightweight convenience implementations of the generic components.
