MixedCC (Mixed Compiler Compiler) is a parser-generator framework for multi-layer templates. It also works as a detachable stack machine engine. LL(1) BNF grammars of respective layers are specified in JavaCC-like syntax. The lexer is either JavaCC-generated or user-written. Tokens can represent stack-machine transition commands.
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.
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.
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.
SPindent (Server Page Indenter) is a JSP/PHP structural validator and indenter. It performs structural compatibility check of inner HTML generated from "parallel" branches of process flow statements such as if/else. It allows for those HTML branches to have different entry and exit HTML stack points, as far as the branches are compatible. This allows for verification and proper indentation of handy workarounds, as well as rusty pyramids. It is based on MixedCC (Mixed Compiler Compiler).
