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.
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.).
dao-zero is a tiny Java bean used to reduce the source of a persistence tier based on Spring's iBatis support. The usual way to use iBatis in Spring is to write code and invoke the iBatis API explicitly. dao-zero invokes the iBatis API for the developer automatically, without the need to write implementation code. It will implement DAO interfaces automatically and invoke iBatis SQL mapped statements for you. You can use it to replace your DAO bean class directly.
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.
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.
Mr.Java is a Java IDE that is one step above a command line interface, but not quite as confusing as an IDE. It will compile for you, add libraries to your class path, and run the whole thing, with three simple buttons. Drag a library or Java source file over the window, and it will be put in the right folder. When running programs, the stout is written to a file cleverly named “stdout”, and the std err is cleverly written to file named - you guessed - stderr.
