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.
Quoddy is part of the Fogcutter suite of tools for building intelligent applications. It is basically a sort of "mini Facebook"-like social networking interface. It builds on the APIs for social-graph management, activity stream, activity profiling, tagging, etc. It provides the front-end for managing connections and for letting users provide information about themselves, their interests, etc. But unlike Facebook, there are no silly Pirates vs. Ninjas or Farmville applications.
Heceta is part of the Fogcutter suite of tools for building intelligent applications. It is an "enterprise social search" search engine that leverages all of the various bits of information from Neddick, Quoddy, and other source of "social" knowledge to provide better, deeper, and more insightful search results than you can get from simple document content analysis. Intranet searching in organizations is usually very poor, largely because page-rank type algorithms don't work well due to the lack of links between documents. But by supplementing the content analysis with scoring based on tags, social graph connections, activity-stream information, etc., and applying machine-learning / artificial-intelligence techniques, Heceta can do a superior job of locating the knowledge and information a user needs.
Neddick is part of the Fogcutter suite of tools for building intelligent applications. Neddick provides tools for tagging, ranking, discussing, and discovering various sources of knowledge: Web-links, documents, people, etc. It's over-simplifying a little bit, but think of Neddick as sort of a combination of Reddit, Delicious, and Planet. It also includes a powerful search engine and a recommendations engine, and it lets you categorize, rate, tag, filter, discuss, and discover knowledge in ways that most enterprise search applications can't.
Gradle Felix Launcher Plugin is a Felix Launcher plugin for the Gradle build system. It enables the creation of an Apache Felix framework installation ready to run an osgi bundle application. It features download of the required Apache Felix framework bundles, configuration, assembly, and execution of the Felix framework, and compilation and including of custom bundles into the Felix framework.
Dove is an application that facilitates the distribution of documents to a variety of destination types such as email, local files, FTP, FTPS, SFTP, TFTP, Samba servers, Windows network shared drives, and WebDAV servers. Being an abstraction layer over previously enumerated protocols, it allows sending of documents to email or to a WebDAV server with equal ease.
Grails is a full stack framework for developing Web applications on the Java platform. It builds on the concepts introduced by frameworkds like Rails, Django, and TurboGears, but builds on established Java technologies like Spring and Hibernate. It includes an easy-to-use object relational mapping (ORM) layer, an expressive view technology, a controller layer, a command line scripting environment, an embedded Jetty container which is configured for on-the-fly reloading, dependency injection, support for internationalization (i18n), and a transactional service layer.
