Midao is a framework that was created to simplify development with JDBC. It shields developers from the nuances of vendor JDBC implementations and provides standard JDBC boilerplate code. It is flexible, customizable, and simple and intuitive to use, and provides a lot of functionality: transactions, metadata, type handling, profiling, input/output processing/converting, pooled datasource library support, named parameters, multiple vendor support out of the box, custom exception handling, and overrides. With a single Jar, it supports both JDBC 3.0 (Java 5) and JDBC 4.0 (Java 6). It is well tested, with over 500 unit and functional tests, and is also tested with the latest drivers for Derby, MySQL (MariaDB), PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL.
MASH is a modular, automated script harness. It allows users to implement simple harnesses that perform work external to a system. The framework will invoke that harness as outlined by an XML script. For example, when using the framework to test a system you could create a script that cleans and loads a database, FTPs some data, submits a login form, and verifies HTTP information. Harnesses can easily be built to do almost anything (many harnesses are provided), not just Web page verification. While harnesses are written in Java, the scripts may be run against any type of system as harnesses are intended to act as clients.
Fulworx is a REST framework that uses simple annotations of XWork "Action" implementations to expose restful interfaces. Similar to Struts, Fulworx sits as a controller on top of Restlet. Each action is attached as a resource using Restlets. Standard resources are represented by default as XML (or JSON) using JAXB, but any representation may be specified. Actions may be used in other frameworks such as Struts and Webwork, since they're just XWork implementations.
Niocchi is a Java crawler library implementing synchronous I/O multiplexing. This specific type of implementation allows crawling tens of thousands of hosts in parallel on a single low end server. Niocchi has been designed for big search engines that need to crawl massive amount of data, but can also be used to write no-frills crawlers.
