Essential Management is a multi-user project management system for managing intricate and complex information. Its initial purpose was to allow software development teams to create, maintain, track, and store project requirements on a multi-project basis in a multi-user environment. It has now become more abstract in the type of data it can maintain, allowing the easy addition of new data models and other expansions. Information can be stored in any of several database management systems, and can take advantage of a networked DBMS.
Fossil is a distributed software configuration management/version control system built with reliability and ease of use on mind. It comes with integrated bug tracking and a wiki. It is distributed as a single static binary for easy installation and the ability to run in a chrooted environment. Other highlights include a Web interface, autosync, simple networking, and CGI support.
RJCE enables the editing of any method at runtime, applying the changes to any combination of objects, such as an array, or a complete class. It consists of a compiler, javaprec, and an IDE, Runtime Object Modifier (ROM). javaprec is used to compile programs, enabling runtime editing, and uses both sun.tools.javac and ANLTR for compilation. ROM is a JFrame used for editing methods, browsing classes, and viewing variables at runtime. It also includes an interpreter that runs Java scripts (which circumvent normal language access control) and is run from within any Java program. Aspects are also incorporated into RJCE, to enhance runtime editing.
DisTract is a distributed bug tracker. DisTract allows you to manage bugs in a distributed and potentially offline manner through your Web browser on your local machine. The distribution is achieved by making use of a distributed software control system, Monotone. Thus Monotone is used to move files across the network, perform merging operations, and track the development of every bug.
DrProject is a Web-based software project management portal that integrates a revision history viewer with issue tracking, mailing list management, a wiki, and other features. It is not a learning management system; instead, it is designed to introduce students to the tools that professional development teams use to coordinate their work. Unlike its industrial-strength cousins, SourceForge and CollabNet, DrProject is easy to install and administer. It has a very simple interface: students can learn all of its features in less than an hour. It provides a scripting interface that can be used to automate bulk or repetitive tasks.
