jSmaTeP assists in the use of Java for processing import and export data by configuring a data structure rather than by programming it. The structure of the import data is specified in an XML file. jSmaTeP then generates a value object representing exactly one row or record in the import file based on a given XML data configuration. This means that if the import or export format changes, only the XML data configuration needs to be changed to match it.
BRAP is a Java remoting protocol that uses native Java object serialization encapsulated in HTTP. It aims to be an alternative to Spring HttpInvoker and Spring Security, especially when you don't need or want the dependencies of Spring in your client, such as when building a rich client application where size might be an issue. The authentication mechanism lets you use your own domain objects as credentials. BRAP gives you "pass by reference" even though the object arguments are serialized and passed to the remote service: changes that happen on the remote side can be applied to the client side automatically. BRAP focuses on being easy to use, small in size, yet powerful and extensible.
junixsocket is a Java/JNI library that allows the use of Unix Domain Sockets (AF_UNIX sockets) from Java. In contrast to other implementations, junixsocket extends the Java Sockets API (java.net.Socket, java.net.SocketAddress, etc.) and even supports RMI over AF_UNIX. It is also possible to use it in conjunction with Connector/J to connect to a local MySQL server via Unix domain sockets.
Thread Weaver is a framework for writing multithreaded unit tests for Java classes. It lets you create breakpoints inside your code and to stop individual threads when they reach a breakpoint. This allows you to produce controlled repeatable tests that can help to verify thread safety and detect race conditions.
eXtcos is an extensible JVM component scanner, similar to the component scanning feature of Spring. It is a small library solely focused on the task of class path scanning. It provides an easy-to-use query language for requesting the classes. This is a refreshing change to the boiler plate code you need to use the Spring classes for your own needs. You can get several different kinds of classes with just one query. You can use eXtcos for finding plug-ins for your application, classes meant to be run inside your container or framework, and the like. eXtcos is basically a base library on which other applications, containers, and frameworks can depend on.
FEST JavaFX Compiler Maven Plug-in is a Maven plug-in for compiling JavaFX sources. It compiles JavaFX source and test files. It does not require the JavaFX distribution to be in a Maven repository (since, according to its license, only Oracle can distribute JavaFX). It does not require you to list all JavaFX libraries as dependencies in your pom.xml.
persistence4j is a small and lightweight Java object persister that uses JDBC to persist data into a relational database. The library frees you from writing the Data transfer objects - just create a POJO and simply save it. Transactional and non-transactional connections are supported and can be configured from the simple properties file.
