What is Tentackle?

Tentackle is a Java framework for the development of Swing-based multi-tier desktop enterprise applications with a strong focus on productivity. It has been designed from an application developer's point of view and covers typical requirements such as O/R mapping, feature-rich GUI, reporting, security management, middle tier server, desktop integration, web integration and many more. Tentackle runs on top of Java-SE, has a small footprint and is Open Source according to the LGPL.



The Tentackle framework has been successfully used in several projects and was initially developed as Closed Source in parallel with the agile code generator Wurbelizer. Eventually, Tentackle became Open Source -- "for those who were interested". In 2008 Tentackle officially went online with its own website.
