Conary is a distributed software management system for Linux distributions. It replaces traditional package management solutions (such as RPM and dpkg) with one designed to enable loose collaboration across the Internet. It enables sets of distributed and loosely connected repositories to define the components which are installed on a Linux system. Rather than having a full distribution come from a single vendor, it allows administrators and developers to branch a distribution, keeping the pieces which fit their environment while grabbing components from other repositories across the Internet.
Poor Man's Imaging Wrapper a clean and simple API wrapper over JAI, Java2D, ImageIO, and AWT. It supports a set of imaging operations (read, write, scale/resize, crop, grayscale, add transparency, rotate, add border, flip/mirror, add text, overlay, blur, sharpen, etc.) with simple direct calls to the API. If you want to switch from Java2D to JAI, all you need to do is add JAI jars to the classpath. It supports GIF encoding if PJA tools jars are available in the classpath.
Rome is a set of Atom/RSS Java utilities that make it easy to work in Java with most syndication formats. It accepts all current flavors of RSS (0.90, 0.91, 0.92, 0.93, 0.94, 1.0, and 2.0) and Atom 0.3 feeds. Rome includes a set of parsers and generators for the various flavors of feeds, as well as converters to convert from one format to another. The parsers can give you back Java objects that are either specific for the format you want to work with, or a generic normalized SyndFeed object that lets you work on with the data without bothering about the underlying format.
