What is Katari?

How does it work?

Katari is built upon the most well known open source frameworks:

  • Spring
  • Spring-mvc
  • Hibernate
  • Acegi security (now Spring security)
  • Freemarker
  • Sitemesh

But you don't have to spend a week or more properly integrating and configuring them. With Katari you get a sample application up and running in a couple of minutes.

You can get started in Katari with the help of the provided maven archetype (yes, it uses Maven). The getting started guide will give you instructions on how to start with Katari. Visit for more information. In that page you can find a user manual in pdf.
