Amiba is a Gene Expression Programming (GEP) framework for Java. GEP is, like genetic algorithms, a branch of evolutionary computing. The framework separates the process of evolution from the process of interpretation of the chromosome, allowing the use of various schemes. For example, graphs may be used as terminals and graph operations as operators in the chromosome instead of the usual double precision numbers. It implements mutation, transposition, and recombination. Options and rates are easily configured through an XML file. A mechanism to load fitness cases in bulk is also provided.
With MetaModel, you use a type-safe SQL-like API for querying any datastore. It is a data access framework providing a common interface for exploration and querying of different types of datastores. It isn't a data mapping framework. Instead, it emphasizes abstraction of metadata and the ability to add data sources at runtime, making MetaModel great for generic data processing applications, but less so for applications modeled around a particular domain.
The mission of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) project is to create and maintain software libraries that provide a predictable and consistent interface to underlying platform- specific implementations. The primary goal is to provide an API to which software developers may code and be assured of predictable if not identical behaviour regardless of the platform on which their software is built, relieving them of the need to code special-case conditions to work around or take advantage of platform-specific deficiencies or features.
AppFuse is an application for "kickstarting" Web application development. It allows you to execute a single ant task to create a skeleton application based on Struts, Spring, and Hibernate running on Tomcat and MySQL. It uses Ant, XDoclet, Spring, Hibernate (or iBATIS), JUnit, jMock, StrutsTestCase, Canoo's WebTest, Struts Menu, Display Tag Library, OSCache, JSTL, and Struts. (Spring MVC, WebWork, Tapestry and JSF are also options.)
Aranea is a hierarchical Model-View-Controller Web framework that provides a common, simple approach to building Web application components, reusing custom or general GUI logic, and extending the framework. The framework enforces programming using object oriented techniques with POJOs and provides a JSP tag library that facilitates the programming of Web GUIs without writing HTML. In addition to being a full-fledged Web framework in its own right, it provides a powerful and simple component system that allows the framework to be tailored by configuring the reusable modules and adding modules only for the missing features.
Architecture Rules is a Java library that allows a programmer to assert code's architecture via unit tests or ant tasks. This test is able to assert that specific packages do not depend on others and is able to check for and report on cyclic dependencies among your project's packages and classes. This project wraps a industry accepted JDepend to simplify the process of maintaining a solid software architecture.
