Overthere is a Java library to manipulate files and execute processes on remote hosts, i.e. do stuff "over there". It was built for and is used in the XebiaLabs deployment automation product Deployit as a way to perform tasks on remote hosts, e.g. copy configuration files, install EAR files, or restart Web servers. Another way of looking at it is to say that Overthere gives you java.io.File and java.lang.Process as they should have been: as interfaces, created by a factory and extensible through an SPI mechanism.
PirateWall is a simple Twitter Client. It displays search results for a certain keyword or hashtag in realtime in a shell-based environment. It can also be configured to act as a data provider for many different visualization tools. For example, it is possible to use the client as a text generator for many XScreensaver applications like "apple2" or "starwars". When used in a Unix shell environment, colorized output can be generated.
uimaFIT provides Java annotations for describing UIMA components which can be used to directly describe the UIMA components in Java code without the need for traditional UIMA XML descriptors. This greatly simplifies refactoring a component definition (e.g., changing a configuration parameter name). uimaFIT also makes it easy to instantiate UIMA components without using XML descriptor files by providing convenient factory methods. This makes uimaFIT an ideal library for testing UIMA components because the component can be easily instantiated and invoked without requiring a descriptor file to be created first. uimaFIT is very useful in research environments in which programmatic/dynamic instantiation of UIMA pipelines can simplify experimentation. For example, when performing 10-fold cross-validation across a number of experimental conditions, it can be quite laborious to create a different set of descriptor files for each run, or even a script which generates such descriptor files. uimaFIT is type system agnostic and does not depend on (or provide) a specific type system. This project has been superseded by the Apache uimaFIT project.
Evo Class Index is an annotation processor that at compile-time generates an index of classes implementing a given interface, classes annotated by given annotation, or placed in a common package. Its small run-time performance impact makes it an interesting alternative to any annotation scanning library like Reflections or Scannotations. The generated indexes are compatible with the ServiceLoader framework, so you will never need to create the files in META-INF/services by hand.
RCSSmin is a CSS minifier. The implementation is based on the semantics of the YUI compressor, but aiming for speed instead of maximum compression so that it can be used at runtime rather than during a preprocessing step. rCSSmin does syntactical compression only (removing spaces, comments, and possibly semicolons). It does not provide semantic compression (like removing empty blocks, collapsing redundant properties etc). It does, however, support various CSS hacks (by keeping them working as intended).
QuickDic parses data from en.wiktionary.org and Beolingus to generate dictionary files that can be used offline. It currently has built-in dictionaries from English to: German (Deutsch - Englisch), Italian (inglese - italiano), Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Belarusian, Bengali, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Chinese|Mandarin|Cantonese, Danish, Dutch, Esperanto, Estonian, Finnish, French, Greek, Hawaiian, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Latin, Latvian, Lithuanian, Japanese, Korean, Kurdish, Malay, Maori, Mongolian, Nepali, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Sanskrit, Serbian, Slovak, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tajik, Thai, Tibetan, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Welsh, Yiddish, and Zulu.
tools4j-config supports long-running enterprise Java applications with a framework for handling configuration changes without restarting. It also aids in developing applications which are decoupled from knowing how and where to store, retrieve, and validate configurations. The aim is to liberate applications to use configurations seamlessly on the terms of their particular environment, without constraining them to Java SE, EE, OSGi, Spring, CDI, or any other programming model or framework.
The Geomajas API project contains some annotations that can be used to indicate which parts (which classes and which (public) methods or fields) are considered as the API. This is particularly useful for projects where you want to mark the API without the need to refactor everything to interfaces and factories.
