OpenXava is a framework for rapidly developing domain-driven apps in Java, like Apache Isis, but OpenXava uses JPA and it's used by hundreds of companies to create critical applications.

Write your business logic in entities and the framework dynamically generates a representation of that domain model as a webapp.
