TagEventor is a project to enable radically simple computer usage by creating physical-object-based user interfaces. It does this using commercially available (and relatively cheap), standardized RFID technology in the form of small, simple USB connected contacted card/tag readers and small, cheap tags. The project was started based on products available from the "touchatag" company, which has clients for Windows and Mac, and run their own Web service to enable many interesting Web-based applications. However, no simple, lightweight Linux client was available, and the Web focus meant that some client-focused functionality was not possible. The software is currently a daemon that monitors the presence of one or more RFID tags on a connected reader and generates "system events" when tags are placed on it or removed from it.
Testar is a tool that reduces testing time for large Java unit test suites. It runs on top of JUnit and automatically selects individual tests to execute based on changes made to the code since the previous tool invocation. It can be used both from the command line and inside an IDE.
BART Tracker reports on arriving San Francisco area BART trains in real time, using a system tray icon. It uses BART's new "Estimated Arrivals" or "BART System Status" feature, which reports on the current up-to-the-minute status of arriving trains at every BART station. It requires Java 6.
The mod_cidr_lookup is an Apache module for version 2.2 and 2.0. The mod_cidr_lookup detects client type by looking up the client's source IP address in CIDR blocks. This module sets the environment variable X_CLIENT_TYPE and the HTTP request header X-Client-Type, so it can be used in both Apache (httpd.conf) and Web applications.
hotpotato (or hptt, for short) is a high performance and throughput oriented HTTP client Java library, with support for HTTP 1.1 pipelining. It was developed mostly towards server-side usage, where speed and low resource usage are the key factors, but it can be used to build client applications as well. Built on top of Netty and designed for high concurrency scenarios where multiple threads can use the same instance of a client without any worries for external or internal synchronization, hotpotato helps you reduce initialization and/or preparation times and resource squandering. Among many small optimizations, connections are reused whenever possible, which results in a severe reduction of total request execution times by cutting connection establishment overhead.
RbUtils is a development tool which provides utilities for Java ResourceBundles. RbChecker checks if a properties file has a corresponding ResourceBundle that can be loaded from the classpath. RbContentLister displays the content of a ResourceBundle. RbGenerator generates Java ResourceBundle source file by processing properties file.
