Apache .NET Ant Library is a library of Apache Ant tasks that support development for the .NET platform. It supports Microsoft's frameworks as well as Mono. The library contains tasks to run common .NET development tools like NUnit, NAnt, or MSBuild. In addition, it contains a task to create Windows MSI installer packages using the WiX toolkit. The "old" .NET development tasks of Ant's core have found a new home here as well, and further development of those tasks will happen inside of this Ant Library.
The Ape Base Compile System is a set of scripts that leverage ESP EPM and MREPO to maintain Red Hat based systems that require custom and secluded binaries. It achieves cross platform reproducible compiles applications like Apache HTTPD, MySQL, and PHP, supports a common --prefix parent directory to allow different versions of an application to be installed, provides an easy method to switch between application versions, places selected application binaries in a central "bin" directory, supports delivery via Yum and other common installers, and provides a method for non-compiled "skeleton" files to be included with installation and distribution.
Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.
BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.
Multi-Dimensional Clustering (MDC) Table Size Estimator for DB2 is an application that can be used to optimally estimate space requirements based on table statistics and MDC parameters. It has the ability to use one or more clustering dimensions, which speeds up the query process and frees users from the burdens of converting a table to MDC on AIX and Windows.
FireAnt is an Eclipse plugin for modeling complex remote deployment and configuration processes for EJBs. It allows developers to model the deployment and execution of groups of packages and configuration scripts on remote targets. After modeling a deployment plan, FireAnt's runtime infrastructure SSHs into each target, copies over the specified files, deploys the EJBs and Webapps, runs any required deployment scripts, and then cleans the staging environment.
