OpenLaszlo Schema Generator provides methods to enhance LZX-Markup from the OpenLaszlo RIA with full schema/namespace support and validation. You can run it from the command line or from inside your project using ANT. The JAR contains tasks to generate an XSD from your project LZX files; by doing that, you have full Schema Validation in Eclipse, and it will show you all your XML schema errors. The validation is aware of ALL tags and attributes: the LZX base components (+incubator) and your project specific code. Further, you get content-sensitive drop down menus for Tags and Attributes.
Flaka is an extension for Ant that runs with Ant versions 1.7.x and 1.8.x. A main project goal of Flaka is the simplification of writing a build script. It requires Ant >= 1.7.x and Java >= 1.5. It provides an expression language (Java Unified Expression Language) allowing access to data objects that makes many scripting parts in Ant scripts unnecessary. It provides conditional and repetitive control structures like when, unless, while, for, choose, switch, etc. It provides exception handling. It provides additional types, tasks, and macros. It provides comprehensive documentation.
Lattice is a Java build system with strong multi-module support. Build files are written not in XML, but in the Python language. The benefits are much better readability and powerful imperative build scripting. For multi-module projects, Lattice uses topological sorting to decide the correct order to build each module. Because a custom task is just a regular Python function, they can perform any type of work, including invoking other Java build systems such as Ant, Maven, or Ivy.
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.
