The Fressia Project is an effort to develop a framework for testing automation. It's intended for users (testers) who want a simple tool that can be used just out of the box. It was originally conceived as part of the QA efforts at the US National Optical Astronomy Observatory. It has been delivered to the community because, despite it still being at early stages, it has proven to be a useful general purpose testing tool. It is designed to provide functional testing, system testing, system integration testing, white (black) box testing, automated regression testing, acceptance testing, etc.
Chaplin ACT is a Java class transformer which brings several modern language concepts into Java: contexts, composites, roles, traits (mixins), runtime type conversion, dynamic method signatures, method and field aggregators, etc. Using these concepts makes designing loosely-coupled applications and writing cohesive code easier. Chaplin can work either as a JVM agent or as a post-compilation class transformer. It does not introduce any new syntax. All functionality is implemented by means of the standard Java language elements.
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.
When a user inputs a hostname or an IP address, MQ Port Scan will scan a range of ports looking for a queue manager's MCA, using the standard (system default) channel names, in order to make a successful connection. It is very easy to use. It has the ability to search across a range of IP addresses and scan the port range for each IP address. Any time MQ Port Scan successfully connects to a queue manager, the information is written to a CSV file. The output will include the queue manager name, MQ version, channel name, hostname or an IP address, and port number.
