LdapTemplate is a framework to simplify LDAP programming in Java, built on the same principles as Spring Jdbc. The LdapTemplate class encapsulates all the plumbing work involved in traditional LDAP programming, such as creating Contexts, looping through NamingEnumerations, handling Exceptions, and cleaning up resources. This leaves the programmer free to handle the important stuff: where to find data (DNs and Filters) and what do do with it (map to and from domain objects, bind, modify, unbind, etc.).
The Spring Rich Client Project (RCP) is a sub-project of the Spring Framework. Spring-RCP's mission is to provide an elegant way to build highly-configurable, GUI-standards-following rich-client applications faster by leveraging the Spring Framework. It also provides a rich library of UI factories and support classes. Its initial focus is on providing support for Swing applications, but a goal of Spring-RCP is to be view agnostic as much as possible.
Status Reporter is a time tracking application that was designed to track the time spent working on various activities associated with work breakdown structure (WBS) line items. Each activity is associated with a WBS line item, and a WBS line item is part of the overall departmental budget. Even though it was developed for a specific purpose, the ideas can be applied to almost any situation. For example, if you do not use WBS numbers, you could just create a single WBS number and associate all activities with it. Alternatively if you have multiple projects, you can use the WBS numbers as individual projects and have one or more activities associated with each. The WBS number does not have to be numeric, so it is flexible in its usage.
BART Tracker reports on arriving San Francisco area BART trains in real time, using a system tray icon. It uses BART's new "Estimated Arrivals" or "BART System Status" feature, which reports on the current up-to-the-minute status of arriving trains at every BART station. It requires Java 6.
RbUtils is a development tool which provides utilities for Java ResourceBundles. RbChecker checks if a properties file has a corresponding ResourceBundle that can be loaded from the classpath. RbContentLister displays the content of a ResourceBundle. RbGenerator generates Java ResourceBundle source file by processing properties file.
jniThreadCPUUsage is a Java library to get the amount of user and system CPU time used per thread. This is done via JNI, which calls getrusage() on the system. getrusage() is only available on Linux 2.6.26 or later and Solaris. One useful application of this is measuring the amount of CPU time used for a servlet request. getrusage() CPU time reporting is better than using the real time clock because it measures actual CPU time used and disregards times when the thread is idle or waiting (such as when it is waiting for network I/O).
