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.
Roundhouse is a modular J2EE application platform that allows applications to combine Struts modules, JSR-168 portlets, and Web services into a single application. It is intended to take the drudgery out of new J2EE application development by providing existing user and security architecture, navigation, and logging although it can be used standalone with no additional development. It ships with forum and blog modules along with several handy portlets which essentially make it a a portal based blog and forums application. The architecture is Struts-based and includes a Struts-based JSR-168 Portlet container. Developers extend Roundhouse by creating new standalone modules which can be independently developed without mucking around in the Roundhouse codebase and merged with Roundhouse and any number of other modules at build time. Modules can be created, packaged as MARF files, and redistributed.
jbootstrap is a tool that bootstraps your Java application without complex CLASSPATH settings. As long as your JAR dependencies are under one directory, jbootstrap will pick up the JARs, create an appropriate classloader, and fire up your application without requiring CLASSPATH adjustments.
Logfilter is a tool for performing ad hoc analysis on Apache log files. Logfilter is especially useful when you wish to find records matching very specific criteria, since you can specify exactly which fields to match. The tool also plays well in a Unix environment by accepting input either through files or via stdin.
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.
