While the author of BSAX-J has not yet come to a final conclusion about the need for a binary XML format, BSAX is his idea of one possible encoding that leverages other XML prior art (SAX events and UTF-8, in particular). It is complete in that it can be used to perform round-trip conversions from textual XML to SAX events to BSAX binary streams, and back to SAX events and textual XML. The test code in the distribution does exactly that for a simple example XML file, and measures the difference in file size (the file is slightly smaller for the BSAX encoding of the sample file) and the difference in read time (the read time is significantly faster for the sample file).
JAM (JavaGen Ant Modules) allows Java/J2EE developers to create robust, test-driven build environments with just a few lines of Ant script. Builds are simplified with a standard set of commands that you customize for your project. The Maven-to-Ant bridge manages classpaths, dependencies, versioning, and resource downloads automatically. JAM modules support JBoss, Tomcat 5, Resin, Oracle OC4J, JUnit, Cactus, XDoclet, CVS, Axis, Castor, JMX EJBs, and Hibernate.
SNAP Platform is a development toolkit that packages into an easy to install solution the the Jikes Java compiler, the SableVM Java-like virtual machine and the GNU Classpath Java-like API, and the Eclipse universal tools platform, plus sample programs with source code and developer documentation.
XMLImportDB provides an easy-to-use interface that allows developers to create a baseline database environment that can be embedded in their source code for use in jUnit test cases. The database environment can be described in a separate file in the same package as the tests, in a hard coded string in the test case classes, or in any other location for which a java.io.Reader can be created at runtime.
JBup (Java Backup) aims to become a robust, professional backup tool. It creates a mirror of the current file set and compares it to the previous version. The deltas are saved and the previous mirror is removed. By applying the increments in reverse time order, complete backups of arbitrary versions can be created. It is an Ant task and can therefore be used in Ant scripts that perform additional backup actions, such as archiving directories or sending emails.
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.
