JChav is a way to see the change in performance of your Web application over time by running a benchmark test for each build you produce. It is an Ant task that, when used in conjunction with the JMeter ant task, produces historic views of the performance of your application. Charts are produced for individaul pages of the application along with summary data. If integrated with cruise-control or similar build tools, you will get an idea if the changes you are making to your Web application are improving or degrading performance.
AntUnit is a library of Ant tasks that was initially developed to write tests for Ant tasks without resorting to JUnit. It makes it easy to turn an existing build file that exhibits an error into an AntUnit test. Tests are written as targets in a build file using assertion tasks provided by AntUnit. The antunit task executes targets in a collection of build files and supports custom listeners in a manner similar to the junit task's formatters.
JewelCLI provides an API to parse command line arguments. It uses Java annotations to present a very simple but powerful interface. Options are defined using an annotated Java interface definition. This allow a declarative style which can be much clearer than the procedural style used by some other Java CLI libraries.
Wiseman is an implementation of the WS-Management specification for the Java SE platform. The project scope includes the WS-Management specification and its dependent specifications, which can be found at http://www.dmtf.org/standards/wbem/wsman/. The project requires Java SE 5+ or above, and is built on JAXB 2.0 and SAAJ 1.3 (part of the JAX-WS project). Ant scripts for standalone and Netbeans builds are supplied.
Apache .NET Ant Library is a library of Apache Ant tasks that support development for the .NET platform. It supports Microsoft's frameworks as well as Mono. The library contains tasks to run common .NET development tools like NUnit, NAnt, or MSBuild. In addition, it contains a task to create Windows MSI installer packages using the WiX toolkit. The "old" .NET development tasks of Ant's core have found a new home here as well, and further development of those tasks will happen inside of this Ant Library.
