The Importance of Being Small
Jodd is oriented more around simpler libraries for doing what people have oftentimes used heavyweight frameworks for: not in terms of performance though necessarily, but in terms of mental efforts and scaffolding required to get a MVP out the door. The very point of minimalism from a reliability perspective is to reduce points of failure in code with simply less parts.
With only 1.5 MB in size, Jodd tools and microframeworks tries to make things as simple as possible, but no simpler.
Todays world of Java is ruled by Enterprise Giants. It seems that nowadays we are coding more in frameworks, then with the language itself. Did we lost the joy of simple coding? Meet Jodd microframeworks, return to simplicity of coding in Java.
