Xenofarm is a distributed build script similar to Mozilla's Tinderbox, but with more emphasis on finding the causes of bugs rather than merely finding that they exist. The main differences are that Xenofarm synchronizes its build on all platforms (so all the hosts build the same source package at the same time), Xenofarm waits for five minutes (by default) since the last CVS checkin before getting its checkout (to minimize the chance of getting broken code in the middle of a checkin), and more information is sent from the build machines to the front end (so you can track bugs even without login access to the build machines).
Revert sets back timestamps on files if they have not changed. If a source file has identical content to a destination file but the destination's modification time is newer, the mtime is set back to the same as the source. This can save time when using make(1) and generated files, for example. Usage is like cp(1).
AnthillPro is a build management and lifecycle automation server for the enterprise that makes the build and release process easy and efficient. As a continuous integration server, it can produce a new build for every developer check-in. The entire team can be alerted to problems via email or instant message. Each build can then be promoted to higher statuses, or deployed to various servers and environments using your scripts. At every step, AnthillPro records who did what to keep your auditors happy.
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.
Grid Application Framework for Java (GAF4J) is a lightweight framework that abstracts all grid semantics from the application logic and provides a simpler programming model that lines up smoothly with common Java programming models. It abstracts the details of interfacing with a grid middleware, which is assumed to be the Globus Toolkit, for transferring files to remote nodes, starting remote jobs, and monitoring their execution status. It provides a simpler programming model that enables the development of maintainable Java applications uncluttered with calls to grid services.
The Helix Ribosome build system is a set of programs written in the Python programming language which provide a common interface to retrieving and building programs from source code stored in a CVS repository. The build system is made up of two basic subsystems. The first ("build") calculates the dependencies of a target, retrieves the source code, and runs commands to build that source code in the correct order. The second component ("Umake") is a cross-platform Makefile generator, which generates makefiles that work with MSVC, CodeWarrior, and typical Unix toolchains. Umake can be used independently from the build program.
CUT is a unit-testing framework for C, C++, and Objective-C. Unlike other unit testing tools, CUT doesn't strive to be an SUnit clone. It automates a lot of the drudge work often encountered when using other unit testing packages for the C family of programming languages. CUT may also be used to unit-test assembly language software in some circumstances.
PHing Is Not GNU make; it's a project build system based on Apache Ant. You can do anything with it that you could do with a traditional build system like GNU make, and its use of simple XML build files and extensible PHP "task" classes make it an easy-to-use and highly flexible build framework. Features include file transformations (e.g. token replacement, XSLT transformation, Smarty template transformations), file system operations, interactive build support, SQL execution, CVS operations, and much more.
