Ammentos is a lightweight persistence framework for JDK 5. It does not require any installation nor configuration; just put a jar file into your classpath and start writing code. It is designed so that your persistence code will be dramatically short and so that you won't have to spend a lot of time to learn how to use it. It is about 72Kb large and it does not require any external library except for your database JDBC driver. You can use it in desktop applications or in server-based environments.
OpenVPS is a set of software built on top of the Linux VServer aimed specifically at Web Hosting. It is not another set of kernel patches, but a set of scripts to create virtual servers, collect resource utilization information, and provide an interface to the customer as well as the administrator.
Jetspeed-2 is a full implementation of the Java Portlet API. It is fully compliant with the Portlet Specification 1.0 (JSR-168). It has passed the TCK (Test Compatibility Kit) suite and is fully CERTIFIED to the Java Portlet Standard. Notable features include security components backed by LDAP and database implementations, and some robust administration interfaces. Custom portals can be built and deployed using the Jetspeed plugin for Maven. Developers can use the Jetspeed PSML language to assemble portlets, and the Apache Portals Bridges project to 'bridge' portals with existing technologies including Struts, JSF, PHP, and Perl. For GUI designers, Jetspeed comes with several built-in templates used to decorate portals and portlets.
x4juli is a port of the main parts of log4j to the J2SE Logging API. The default implementation is incomplete and therefore still not widely used, even when introduced in J2SE 1.4. x4juli provides logmanagers, formatters, handlers, and filters to fill the gap. The interface and use of the original API has not been changed. Additionally, x4juli delivers a native implementation of the Jakarta Commons Logging (JCL) API and the Simple Logging Facade for Java (SLF4J) API.
Graffito is a framework used to build content-based applications like CMSs, document management systems, forums, blogs, etc. It offers a complete platform for creating, managing, and publishing content in your portal or in any other kind of Java application. It integrates content repositories, workflow, collaboration, and personalization via existing open source projects and standards like WEBDAV.
JCons provides a library that bring color to your Java console. The Java console gives no methods to change the foreground or background color. With help of this library, one can make error messages red and success messages green, for example. Most Unix terminals can deal with ESC sequences, so they are used to make the Java console colorful.
Wicket is a Java Web application framework implementing simplicity, separation of concerns, and ease of development. Wicket pages can be mocked up, previewed, and later revised using standard WYSIWYG HTML design tools. Dynamic content processing and form handling is all handled in Java code using a component model backed by POJO data beans that can easily be persisted using your favourite technology.
Oddjob is a Java job scheduler and task automation framework. A GUI designer or XML are used to define a hierarchy of jobs. Sequential, parallel, and conditional execution (or combinations) allow for nearly any business process to be modelled. Oddjob can run on the desktop or on a server and uses JMX to control remote instances via an Explorer-style GUI. Basic Web-based monitoring is also available. It can be embedded in client code and is easily extensible via a simple API.
