The Shared Scientific Toolbox is a library that facilitates development of efficient, modular, and robust scientific/distributed computing applications in Java. It features multidimensional arrays with extensive linear algebra and FFT support, an asynchronous, scalable networking layer, and advanced class loading, message passing, and statistics packages.
Dapper, or "Distributed and Parallel Program Execution Runtime", is a tool for taming the complexities of developing for large-scale cloud and grid computing, enabling the user to create distributed computations from the essentials: the code that will execute, along with a dataflow graph description. It supports rich execution semantics, carefree deployment, a robust control protocol, modification of the dataflow graph at runtime, and an intuitive user interface.
BaseX is a light-weight, high-performance, and scalable XML database system and XPath/XQuery processor, including full support for the W3C Update and Full Text extensions. An interactive and user-friendly GUI frontend gives you great insight into large XML data instances. It is platform independent and works out of the box.
ZicBee is an autonomous music database and player that is also usable from quodlibet, a Web browser, or any player that supports the M3U format. The primary goal of this project is to support very large databases of music from multiple hosts or removable storage, while remaining responsive to the user.
HDT (Hardware Detection Tool) is an OS independent tool that displays low-level information on any x86 compatible system. It detects ACPI, CPU, PCI devices, DMI (memory, BIOS, motherboard, IPMI base board, chassis, batteries, CPU), disks (geometry, partitions), PXE environment, VESA modes, and VPD. It can also deduce the Linux kernel modules needed by a given host.
LiveUSB OpenBSD is a complete bootable OpenBSD image with which you can get a complete X Window System environment with Window Maker, mplayer, xpdf, and so on. It is deliberately minimalistic. It has all the standard OpenBSD daemons that come with stock OpenBSD including the pf(4) firewall, relayd(8), and spamd(8). It is available in Lite and Full variants. The full version has a whole bunch of packages including Mozilla Firefox, pidgin, and nmap. Both versions include color man pages, full mplayer menus, YouTube download scripts, and more.
