FreeMarker is a "template engine"; a generic tool to generate text output (anything from HTML to autogenerated source code) based on templates. It's a Java package, a class library for Java programmers. It's not an application for end-users in itself, but something that programmers can embed into their products. FreeMarker is designed to be practical for the generation of HTML Web pages, particularly by servlet-based applications following the MVC (Model View Controller) pattern. The idea behind using the MVC pattern for dynamic Web pages is that you separate the designers (HTML authors) from the programmers. Everybody works on what they are good at. Designers can change the appearance of a page without programmers having to change or recompile code, because the application logic (Java programs) and page design (FreeMarker templates) are separated. Templates do not become polluted with complex program fragments. This separation is useful even for projects where the programmer and the HTML page author is the same person, since it helps to keep the application clear and easily maintainable. Although FreeMarker has some programming capabilities, it is not a full-blown programming language like PHP. Instead, Java programs prepare the data to be displayed (like issue SQL queries), and FreeMarker just generates textual pages that display the prepared data using templates. Main Features: - Can be used to generate any kind of text: HTML, XML, RTF, Java source code, etc. - Easy to embed into your product: Lightweight. Does not require servlet environment (does not depend on javax.servlet classes). - Pluggable template loader: you can load templates from any sources; local files, database, etc. - You can do whatever you want with the generated text: store it in a local file, send it as e-mail, send it back to a Web browser from a Web application, etc. - Built-in constructs in the template language to handle typical Web related tasks like HTML-escaping. - Can be integrated with "Model 2" Web application frameworks out-of-the-box as JSP replacement. - Supports JSP taglibs. - Designed for MVC pattern: separate visual design from application logic, separate page designers from programmers.
