Karora Moomba is an implementation of the Eclipse Workbench API for the web. For the first time, it brings developers a serious framework for building highly dynamic, pluggable web applications based upon a well known framework. Combined with Karora's Cooee UI framework, developers need only know a small amount of Swing/Cooee/Echo2 and some basic Eclipse interfaces to quickly produce impressive rich web applications.

As Moomba harnesses OSGI (like Eclipse) as its plugin framework, it also gains the dynamic nature of OSGI. This means Moomba plugins can be started, stopped, installed and updated on the fly without shutting down the application server. Something rarely found in a java based web application framework.

Moomba is also one of the first web application frameworks to use and be compatible with the Spring-OSGI framework. This framework brings the power of Spring to the OSGI environment, meaning that all the usual Spring tools are available to your Moomba plugins.

Moomba also makes extensive use of the Karora Orana package - an implementation of Eclipse JFace for Cooee. Through this, developers have access to such expected infrastructure as dialogs, viewers and wizards.
