Organon is a tool to manage development projects of any kind, acting as a meta-interface and control center for a developer's favorite development tools. It is written for those who use specialized, stand-alone editors to write their code but would like to have a tool to manage the file groups they work with. It can be used with any programming language, and it can be easily tailored to match your needs. You can configure the standard tools (dedicated to editing, compilation, and execution), and you can define any number of new user tools.
ControlTier is a set of tools and an automation framework for deploying and managing multi-tier Web applications (or any application stack). It orchestrates the deployment and updating of code, data, and content across multiple physical, virtual, or cloud-based servers or clusters. Multiple tools include a command dispatching framework, a self-service Web interface, a multi-purpose CMBD/inventory tool, and a reporting infrastructure. Tools can be used individually or as an integrated system for large scale use.
pkgmake automates some steps when making software releases. It creates a copy of the development tree, optionally cleans it up a bit (i.e. removes CVS/* and .svn/*), tars it, places the tarball in the SOURCES/ directory, creates the corresponding .spec file from a provided template (and the data specified in the configuration/on the command line), and runs rpmbuild and/or debbuild as well as spec2arch. As a result, you will have packages for Debian and RPM based distributions as well as the PKGBUILD file for ArchLinux. Using relman as the recommended frontend to pkgmake, new software releases are as easy as calling relman with two parameters: the project name plus the release version - and all packages are made and distributed.
Decorum is a simple dependency extension for Ant. It can construct class paths using a simple list of dependencies. It matches jars to the required version (eg "any", "1.0", "1.2.3+"), and it can build the dependencies if no jar is present. It is intended to be a light-weight alternative to Maven, Ivy, and Antlion.
Project-Builder is a tool that helps you build packages of your application (managed with a tar file or a configuration management system such as CVS, Subversion, Mercurial, or GIT). It is able to generate a build package skeleton for your project. With simple configuration files, it can generate for up to 20 different tuples of distributions (name, version, architecture), including Fedora, Mandriva, OpenSuSE, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, and Slackware. It is a good tool for doing continuous packaging.
