Developers are constantly learning. No amount of knowledge is enough when it comes to facing a new project, and, oftentimes, no arsenal of tools is large enough to help overcome the obstacles that they will surely find along the way. Although Java, a fairly common and widely used programming language, is solidly built in itself, some things can still be made more easily using specialized tools.
For instance, libraries like this, which is coincidentally also based on Java, help greatly in the process of building applications designed using this standard. Rather than rely on XML, this utility uses its own proprietary format and lets you test and run different building blocks of your project and automate them as well to see how they perform before actual integration to the app in development.
It should be said, though, that this community favorite remains that and nothing more, given that its own development has faced some hardships and it is likely that it will suffer the fate of millions of open source projects available online. Try it for yourself while you can.
