2.1.1. Summary of Software Framework of TERASOLUNA Global Framework

Software Framework being used in TERASOLUNA Global Framework is not a proprietory Framework but a combination of various OSS technologies around Spring Framework.


2.1.2. Main Structural Elements of Software Framework

Libraries which constitute TERASOLUNA Global Framework are as follows:

../_images/introduction-software-stack.png DI Container

Spring is used as DI Container. MVC Framework

Spring MVC is used as Web MVC Framework. O/R Mapper

This guideline assumes the use of any one of the below.


MyBatis 3 is planned to be included here.


To be precise MyBatis is “SQL Mapper”, but it is classified as “O/R Mapper” in this guidelines.


Not every project must adopt JPA. For situations in which table design has been done and “Most of the tables are not normalized”, “The number of columns in the table is too large” etc, use of JPA is difficult.

Further, this guideline does not explain the basic usage of JPA. Hence, it is pre-requisite to have JPA experience people in the team. View

JSP is used as View.

For using Tiled JSP, use the following. Security

Spring Security is used as the framework for Authentication and Authorization.


Update to Spring Security 3.2 is planned in future. Validation Logging

  • for Logger API, SLF4J is used.
    • For implementation of Logger, Logback is used.

  1. Dependent libraries, when JPA is used for data access.
  2. Dependent libraries, when MyBatis2 is used for data access.
  3. Libraries which are not dependent on Common Library, but recommended in case of application development using TERASOLUNA Global Framework.

2.1.4. Building blocks of Common Library

Common Library includes + alpha functionalities which are not available in Spring Ecosystem or other dependent libraries included in TERASOLUNA Global Framework. Basically, application development is possible using TERASOLUNA Global Framework even without this library. It is a “nice to have” kind of existence.

No. Project Name Summary Java source-code availability
general-purpose functionality irrespective of Web
Group of functionalities for creating web application
Dependency definition for using JPA
Dependency definition for using MyBatis2
Dependency definition for using Spring Security (other than Web).
Dependency definition for using Spring Security (related to Web) and extended classes of Spring Security.

The project which does not contain the Java source code, only defines library dependencies. terasoluna-gfw-common
