eXtcos is an extensible JVM component scanner, similar to the component scanning feature of Spring. It is a small library solely focused on the task of class path scanning. It provides an easy-to-use query language for requesting the classes. This is a refreshing change to the boiler plate code you need to use the Spring classes for your own needs. You can get several different kinds of classes with just one query. You can use eXtcos for finding plug-ins for your application, classes meant to be run inside your container or framework, and the like. eXtcos is basically a base library on which other applications, containers, and frameworks can depend on.
Glue Stick is a dependency injection framework for Java applications. Beans may be defined in Groovy scripts, GSON configuration files, or Spring Framework XML files. Compared with other dependency injection frameworks for Java, Glue Stick aims to be faster at assembling applications and simpler to use.
visural-wicket is a useful set of light-weight, loosely coupled components and utilities for the Apache Wicket Web framework. Each component is designed to be easily integrated into any existing Wicket application with minimal dependencies. Each component is also designed to be easily customized to fit a particular system's requirements. Other than components, visural-wicket includes some other utilities that assist in the development of Wicket applications, such as an annotation-based mounting system, model templates, and an automatic "form view mode" component.
Dummy Data Generator is a tool that generates dummy data for populating systems for testing. The data includes names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and social "connections". Names are generated by using US Census data on the most common names. Email addresses are just a random string for the user portion and always use "example.com" for the domain. Currently the only output format is CSV.
RunJRun is a very simple system for doing parallel processing in Java, using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances as compute nodes. The basic compute unit is a Runnable, Serializable Java object, a "task" for short. A user submits a list of such tasks to RunJRun. Each task then has its run() method invoked on an EC2 instance. To use it, you'll need an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) that has the RunJRun server-side software installed; several such AMIs are available.
