Java Reliable Multicast (JRM) Service can be used by information distribution applications as the transport for delivery of content to very large constituencies. As compared to unicast protocols (i.e., HTTP), reliable multicast enables broadcasting to groups of receivers, ensuring bandwidth conservation and timely delivery. TRAM, a reliable multicast transport protocol developed along with the JRM Service, is designed for high scalability, targeted at very large numbers of receivers. The JRM Service includes new services for multicast address allocation and management of channels, as well as a dynamic filtering mechanism that uses Java software classes which are pushed into the network for the purpose of interpreting the data downstream from the server.
Open Runtime Platform (ORP) is a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that implements advanced JIT and GC interfaces. These interfaces allow the JIT, GC, and remaining runtime system to be developed in complete isolation and at independent rates. A major benefit is that JIT and GC researchers are relieved of the intractable task of developing a full system before they can innovate in their area of expertise.
Saswire is a Perl program which generates a database in SDBM format containing the modification time, MD5 checksum, size, and creation time for a list of files specified in a input file. It is designed to check for unwanted modifications of Unix system binaries if security is compromised.
Neohunt is an enhanced variant of hunt, a multiplayer game in which you run around a maze and shoot your friends before they shoot you. It is also an artifact of an earlier age, to be used either as nostalgia (if you remember the eighties) or as an example of how much better things are today (if you don't).
