I'm very interested in these kinds of approaches.
There is also Naked Objects (
http://www.nakedobjects.org/home/no_for_java_intro.shtml).

Another example is Apple's own WebObjects.  WebObjects set the high water
mark for web application design, and the peak of that is a technology called
DirectToWeb that enables the production of a totally dynamic web application
based on a database schema (model) and a set of rules that map components to
queries/result sets. The web application is completely built on the fly.
 One of the guiding goals of WebObjects was 'if you're writing code, you're
doing something wrong.'  WebObjects used to be known as the Apple's 'best
kept secret' (it still runs the Apple store, ITMS, and the iPhone App
Store).  Direct2Web was known as 'the best kept secret of the best kept
secret'.

Many other web application technologies (e.g. Cayenne, Seaside) openly admit
to taking what they could from WebObjects.  The idea of using a rules engine
to produce an application on the fly is unfortunately not something that
most application development environments lend themselves to.  Although Rev
does lend itself to this.
