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.
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.
Hoplax is a power user tool to store bookmarks in text files and manage them efficiently. Bookmarks stored in Hoplax are easy to edit and search with normal Unix tools and editors. They are easy to synchronize with git/svn/darcs/etc. Bookmarks can be categorized easily into files, and you can choose to not synchronize a file to a computer, e.g. confidential company bookmarks to home computers. The filtering is smarter than the browser's location bar. Keyword bookmarks with multiple parameters and auto-completion are supported.
FEST JavaFX Compiler Maven Plug-in is a Maven plug-in for compiling JavaFX sources. It compiles JavaFX source and test files. It does not require the JavaFX distribution to be in a Maven repository (since, according to its license, only Oracle can distribute JavaFX). It does not require you to list all JavaFX libraries as dependencies in your pom.xml.
Poor Man's Imaging Wrapper a clean and simple API wrapper over JAI, Java2D, ImageIO, and AWT. It supports a set of imaging operations (read, write, scale/resize, crop, grayscale, add transparency, rotate, add border, flip/mirror, add text, overlay, blur, sharpen, etc.) with simple direct calls to the API. If you want to switch from Java2D to JAI, all you need to do is add JAI jars to the classpath. It supports GIF encoding if PJA tools jars are available in the classpath.
