novi is a tool for finding the latest-version RPMs in a tree. It can be used to create Kickstart trees or yum repositories that contain the updated RPMS. In the case of Kickstart, this means machines come to life with the updates already applied. Using novi for a yum repository trims the size of the repodata files, which reduces client download and processing time.
Logfilter is a tool for performing ad hoc analysis on Apache log files. Logfilter is especially useful when you wish to find records matching very specific criteria, since you can specify exactly which fields to match. The tool also plays well in a Unix environment by accepting input either through files or via stdin.
NagiosAppender is a pure Java implementation of a Log4j appender that allows the developer/administrator to send log records to Nagios via the NCSA server (using the push model). It provides a simple solution for Nagios administrators whose only alternative is to implement a polling function against against the output of a standard Log4j appender. The log4j configuration file provides for user-specific mappings between Log4j levels and Nagios levels. The configuration file also allows the user to select whether to set the Nagios 'service' and 'host' programmatically via Log4j MDC, or via the config file. Later releases support XOR encryption.
Jerimoth is a Web application that allows users to submit resumes and search for technical jobs. Jerimoth stores resumes and employment postings in a highly-structured XML format that has tremendous advantages over ad hoc formats. This format is compatible with the HR-XML standard.
Navigation implements a design pattern that allows you to navigate through complex systems by means of "navigation chains". Each node in the navigation chain is represented as its own object, and can have any number of child links attached to it (done through upwards linking; navigations have no knowledge of their children). This means that you can create a navigation chain to a common point in your system, and then attach multiple subchains at that point. The proof-of-concept handles most HTML navigation requirements, and is used by the author to test Web applications.
