Do you know any advanced UI generation framework that can generate UI from a model or database?
I know Grails and Spring Roo have something but they are only for simple CRUD operations, the best i found for now being OpenXava.
Thanks for any suggestion.
Telosys Tools could be the right tool, it's a customizable code generator available as an Eclipse plugin. It uses the database schema as the model. We use it for CRUD screens with Spring MVC because the generated code is clean. Some predefined bundles of templates are ready to use for Spring MVC, JPA, Angular JS, etc
