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.
xml-test checks that an XML document is included in another document. It is handy when testing an application's output against a document where element order is different (GData and Atom are examples of specifications where element order is unimportant). It has a relaxed notion of containment: element order is ignored, whitespace is trimmed, comments are ignored, specific elements can be ignored by passing XPath-like paths on the command line, and text nodes (element and attribute content) can be ignored by passing '-notext' on the command line.
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.
Sambuca is a Java HTTP server framework that allows developers to embed an HTTP server directly in their applications with custom HTTP request handlers, so that their application can directly process incoming HTTP requests and easily send back HTTP formatted responses to the requesting client. Applications can host standalone HTTP services such as Web Services without having to deploy and integrate with a full application server such as Tomcat, JBoss, or WebLogic.
Reverspring is a Java library that allows you to create Spring IoC XML files from POJO at runtime. CoI stands for Control of Inversion: Reverspring just inverts the inversion of control mechanism of Spring Framework, allowing you to (re)write Spring descriptors starting from your Java objects. With Reverspring, you can write process descriptors on XML files without reinventing a new DTD or XML schema, but just using the well known Spring IoC syntax.
SerfJ provides a very easy way of developing Java REST Web applications. It helps you to develop your application over an elegant MVC architecture, giving more importance to convention than configuration. This means, for example, you will not need configuration files or annotations in order to specify which view serves a controller's method. However, SerfJ is very flexible, so if you want to jump over those conventions, you can configure the behavior of your applications as you like. The framework tries to meet the JSR 311 specification, but it doesn't follow every point of the specification, because the purpose is to have a very intuitive library, and some some aspects of the specification are out of the scope of SerfJ.
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).
