Joist is a web application development stack. It consists of two sub-projects joist.domain, an ORM with type-safe queries (no strings) and no runtime class generation (no CGLIB), and joist.web, a component-based web framework. The goal is a simple, productive environment for enterprise-scale webapps. This screencast shows how to use the bootstrap jar to start a project with some domain objects and tests. It goes through Getting Started information.
