The XUL Framework is a project that is attempting to provide an architecture for different UI technologies to be mapped and rendered from the the Mozilla XUL specification. The purpose is to be able to render a user interface across multiple technologies (Swing, SWT, GWT) without the overhead of rewriting the presentation layer every time, and providing technology agnostic business logic code for reusability.
API is more or less solidified as of this writing. The current implementations in progress are XUL-to-SWT and XUL-to-Swing, with a XUL-to-Web 2.0 very near on the list of priorities. Currently in the process of merging with the Shandor XUL branch.
