hotpotato (or hptt, for short) is a high performance and throughput oriented HTTP client Java library, with support for HTTP 1.1 pipelining. It was developed mostly towards server-side usage, where speed and low resource usage are the key factors, but it can be used to build client applications as well. Built on top of Netty and designed for high concurrency scenarios where multiple threads can use the same instance of a client without any worries for external or internal synchronization, hotpotato helps you reduce initialization and/or preparation times and resource squandering. Among many small optimizations, connections are reused whenever possible, which results in a severe reduction of total request execution times by cutting connection establishment overhead.
The DBacesslayer (or DBSlayer for short) is a lightweight database abstraction layer suitable for high-load Web sites where you need the scalable advantages of connection pooling. DBSlayer talks to clients via JSON over HTTP, meaning it's simple to monitor and can swiftly interoperate with any Web framework you choose.
Surrogate is an HTTP proxy functioning in both forward and reverse proxy modes. It is written in Erlang OTP and uses stream filters for inspecting and modifying data as it passes through the proxy. Additional stream filters can be implemented by writing modules that implement the filter_stream behavior. Reverse proxy features include load balancing. Additional balancer methods can be specified by implementing modules with the gen_balancer behavior. Forward proxy features include gzip compression to end servers, CONNECT support, and an HTTP proxy with authentication that can use MySQL or Mnesia backends. There is also a SOCKS 4/5 proxy listener.
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.
PyMuTester is tool to facilitate Mutant Testing (a.k.a Mutant Analysis or Program Mutation) on software systems written in Python. Its main purpose is to assist you in improving your existing unit tests to cover missing checks and “loopholes” in your testing. It works by making small changes (technically known as mutants) to your Python application’s source code and re-running your unit tests over these mutated applications' source code. Since the mutants usually go against the specifications, your unit tests should fail in such tests. If the unit tests still pass, then that is an indication that your unit tests might have missed some checks.
Jetspeed-2 is a full implementation of the Java Portlet API. It is fully compliant with the Portlet Specification 1.0 (JSR-168). It has passed the TCK (Test Compatibility Kit) suite and is fully CERTIFIED to the Java Portlet Standard. Notable features include security components backed by LDAP and database implementations, and some robust administration interfaces. Custom portals can be built and deployed using the Jetspeed plugin for Maven. Developers can use the Jetspeed PSML language to assemble portlets, and the Apache Portals Bridges project to 'bridge' portals with existing technologies including Struts, JSF, PHP, and Perl. For GUI designers, Jetspeed comes with several built-in templates used to decorate portals and portlets.
