Apache Pivot is a platform for building rich Internet applications (RIAs) in Java. It has now graduated to a Top-Level Project (TLP) and has announced the release of Apache Pivot 1.4. Pivot claims to combine the enhanced productivity and usability features of a modern RIA toolkit with the robustness of the industry-standard Java platform. Pivot provides a foundation upon which sophisticated and engaging applications can be easily built and deployed over the Web. Because Pivot applications are written in Java, they can take full advantage of the comprehensive feature set and extensive industry support of the Java platform.
