Tranche is file storage and dissemination software. Designed and built with scientists and researchers in mind, Tranche can handle very large data sets, is secure and scalable, and all data sets are citable in scientific journals. Features include a fully decentralized architecture, support for very large files, very long-term file persistence/preservation, file immutability/integrity, provenance, encryption, licensing, versioning, and citability.
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.
Glue Stick is a dependency injection framework for Java applications. Beans may be defined in Groovy scripts, GSON configuration files, or Spring Framework XML files. Compared with other dependency injection frameworks for Java, Glue Stick aims to be faster at assembling applications and simpler to use.
With the Cibet framework, it is very easy to add various control mechanisms into a JPA and/or EJB-based Java application. The actual version includes control schemes like Archiving (manipulation of domain objects; data and execution of business processes are archived). From the archived state, domain objects can be reconstructed and business processes can be re-invoked with the same parameters at any time. The archive entries are secured against manipulation to make them audit-proof and revision safe. Four-eyes principle: this scheme is an example of a dual control mechanism: A user wants to perform some critical data manipulation or business process. With an applied dual control mechanism, the action is not executed in the production system directly, but stored and postponed. A second user must check the data and the action and can approve or decline. Only when the second user approves, the data manipulation or business process is executed in the production system; otherwise it is discarded. An even stricter example for a dual control mechanism is the six-eyes principle. In this case, a third user must approve a data manipulation or business process before it will become productive.
visural-wicket is a useful set of light-weight, loosely coupled components and utilities for the Apache Wicket Web framework. Each component is designed to be easily integrated into any existing Wicket application with minimal dependencies. Each component is also designed to be easily customized to fit a particular system's requirements. Other than components, visural-wicket includes some other utilities that assist in the development of Wicket applications, such as an annotation-based mounting system, model templates, and an automatic "form view mode" component.
Sculptor is a productivity tool that applies the concepts from Domain-Driven Design and Domain Specific Languages. You express your design intent in a textual specification, from which Sculptor generates high quality Java code and configuration. You can use the concepts from Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in the textual Domain Specific Language (DSL), e.g. Service, Module, Entity, Value Object, Repository. The generated code is based on well-known frameworks such as Spring Framework, Hibernate, and Java EE. Sculptor takes care of the technical details and the tedious repetitive work, and lets you focus on delivering more business value (and have more fun). The DSL and the code generation drives the development and is not a one time shot. The application can be developed incrementally with an efficient round trip loop. Sculptor is useful when developing typical enterprise or Web applications that benefit from a rich and persistent domain model.
