Salsa is a collection of Swing add-ons. It includes new widgets such as auto-complete textboxes or tree tables, new data models such as XML tree models, UI tree models, or Java Bean table models, new common dialogs such as a font chooser, new convenience methods such as center frame on screen, and much more.
WidgetServer is a Java/XML server-side GUI-framework which enables an application to run as either a monolithic Swing app, a client/server Swing app, or as a Web app without any change and without loss of functionality. An Eclipse Plugin is available as well. A rich widget set is supported that includes tree views, tabbed panes, split panels, and much more. Animations, all types of events, and several effects are supported, as well. A unified widget-based, object-oriented programming interface for Web and Swing GUIs is offered to the developer to control and assemble the GUI. Web applications are fully AJAX enabled. For Swing client/server applications, the framework handles client/server communication, including compression and security layers.
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.
Swing has lot of components built in, but still some are missing. This project provides the developer community with these missing components, inspired from modern user interfaces. It provides a PropertySheet component, a collapsible task pane (JTaskPane), a button bar (JButtonBar), a font chooser (JFontChooser), an Outlook Bar (JOutlookBar), a Tip Of The Day dialog (JTipOfTheDay), and a directory chooser (JDirectoryChooser).
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.
Wicket Web Beans (WWB) is an Apache Wicket component toolkit for displaying and editing POJOs that conform to the JavaBeans specification. Web pages are automatically generated based on bean properties and certain conventions. If necessary, the layout, editability, and actions of these pages can be customized on an exception basis. In other words, the toolkit normally does what you'd expect, but when it doesn't, you can override its behavior.
