An alternative to Roo is, of course, Grails – not owned by VMware/SpringSource but they do put a lot of resource into it. OK so Grails Groovy rather than Java, but the transition is very easy and evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Also underneath it is Spring/Hibernate/Quartz so same stack as Roo. A lot of organizations use Grails to prototype, many thinking they will then rewrite in JavaEE or Java/Spring/… They then do proper tuning of their caches, etc. and discover there is no performance benefit to a rewrite as the caching makes things more than fast enough.
