Tapestry Palette is a plugin for Eclipse that builds upon the Spindle plugin. The palette provides a tree view of Tapestry component libraries, a component inspector to discover parameters available with links to HTML documentation, drag and drop addition of Tapestry component references to templates, and a Property Sheet for editing of component bindings. The plugin can be installed from within Eclipse via an update site.
SwiXAT is a Swing-based authoring tool for the quick and easy development of GUI Java applications. It implements a true MVC framework and uses XML to define the view (SwiXML is used as the XUL engine), BeanShell as a scripting language for the controller, and JXPath as the binding mechanism between the view and model. It provides a complete environment in which it is possible to almost write an entire Java Swing application without writing Java compiled code. The use of XPath makes it very simple to traverse the object tree of the application's business model.
RIFE/Laszlo is based on RIFE/Jumpstart and geared towards easily getting started with the creation of Rich Internet Applications using OpenLaszlo. It is a ready-to-run source distribution and file structure that allows you to get started with a new OpenLaszlo application with RIFE in less then 2 minutes. Typically, all that you have to do is unzip the archive, open the project file in your favourite IDE, and run the application. Thanks to a dynamic development model, you rarely have to restart, and are able to gradually implement your application in an iterative manner.
JewelCLI provides an API to parse command line arguments. It uses Java annotations to present a very simple but powerful interface. Options are defined using an annotated Java interface definition. This allow a declarative style which can be much clearer than the procedural style used by some other Java CLI libraries.
