Metawidget: now twice as useful!

The latest release of Metawidget includes a 'read-only mode' on all supported platforms. So now Metawidget can not only automatically generate the UI for your data entry screens...


...it can also automatically generate your data display screens too:


The mode can be toggled on and off through the setReadOnly method. It potentially doubles the number of places in your app where a chunk of boilerplate code can be replaced with a single Metawidget call.

I've been researching jpa2web, got that working, and openxava (didn't bother: too complex). jpa2web is ok but I get a lot of bugs. I see Spring MVC mentioned a few times. I develop with Spring MVC. How does it relate to that? Does Metawidget just create it's own view/controller based on the model? I basically just want a backoffice out of the box. But it would require support for all jpa type relationships
