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.
Ice is a modern alternative to object middleware such as CORBA or COM/DCOM/COM+. It is easy to learn, yet provides a powerful network infrastructure for demanding technical applications. It features an object-oriented specification language, easy to use C++ and Java mappings, a highly efficient protocol (including protocol compression), asynchronous method invocation and dispatch, dynamic transport plug-ins, TCP/IP and UDP/IP support, SSL-based security, a firewall solution, and much more.
RenderConfig allows the definition of a set of modifications that can be used to transform (or render) a set of source files to provide tailored configuration specific to a particular instance of an application. A typical use case for this is where your application requires a set of configuration files that identify multiple servers that provide particular application services. These application servers will differ depending on whether you are running the application in development, testing, or in production. With RenderConfig, at build time you can explicitly produce a set of configuration files that support all of these configurations, providing the ability to ship the configuration with the other build artifacts.
