Status Reporter is a time tracking application that was designed to track the time spent working on various activities associated with work breakdown structure (WBS) line items. Each activity is associated with a WBS line item, and a WBS line item is part of the overall departmental budget. Even though it was developed for a specific purpose, the ideas can be applied to almost any situation. For example, if you do not use WBS numbers, you could just create a single WBS number and associate all activities with it. Alternatively if you have multiple projects, you can use the WBS numbers as individual projects and have one or more activities associated with each. The WBS number does not have to be numeric, so it is flexible in its usage.
Gerrit is a Web-based code review system, facilitating online code reviews for projects using the Git version control system. Gerrit makes reviews easier by showing changes in a side-by-side display and allowing inline comments to be added by any reviewer. Gerrit simplifies Git-based project maintainership by permitting any authorized user to submit changes to the master Git repository, rather than requiring all approved changes to be merged by hand by the project maintainer. This functionality enables a more centralized usage of Git.
The Pegasus Workflow Management System encompasses a set of technologies which help workflow-based applications execute in a number of different environments, including desktops, campus clusters, grids, and clouds. It bridges the scientific domain and the execution environment by automatically mapping high-level workflow descriptions onto distributed resources. It automatically locates the necessary input data and computational resources necessary for workflow execution. It enables scientists to construct workflows in abstract terms without worrying about the details of the underlying execution environment or the particulars of the low-level specifications required by the middleware (Condor, Globus, or Amazon EC2). It bridges the current cyberinfrastructure by effectively coordinating multiple distributed resources.
action4Java is a lightweight, modular, extendible, and recursive Java component framework. It contains some standardized actions and a data container. These actions are called when a comment tag is found. The action is controlled by the attributes within. Actions can have any purpose. Templating is just an action by itself. The template controls loading of data and storing to a file by itself, and runs independently from a Java development environment. It includes simple examples demonstrating looping within a page or creating several pages based on the data of a simple Excel sheet, and more.
Griffon is dekstop application development platform for the JVM. Inspired by Grails, it leverages the Groovy language and concepts like convention over configuration. The Swing toolkit is the default UI toolkit of choice however others may be used, principaly SWT and JavaFX. Developers may use a combination of the Groovy and Java as well as other JVM languages such as Scala, Clojure, Mirah, and Jython. It encourages the use of the MVC pattern and follows in the spirit of the Swing Application Framework (JSR 296) by defining a simple yet powerful application life cycle and event publishing mechanism.
