Jat (Java Application Template) is a Java framework that is easy to extend. It supplies modular and flexible basic functionalities to develop Web and standalone applications. It can improve application start-up time. Jat Portal is an enhanced version of Jat. It provides several pre-configured features to build a complete Web application.
Lucie is a cluster installation and configuration tool. It enables parallel network installation of large numbers of nodes from one single administration server. The Lucie installer performs HDD partitioning and installations of the Linux kernel and required software packages. The Lucie configurator then generates system and software configurations. Lucie is designed to be scalable and efficient, so a complete Linux cluster can be built from scratch in a short amount of time. Moreover, the whole installation process is designed to be fully automated.
The QuantumChange Component Management System is a system that manages logical software components, subsystem views of those components, and product configurations. It targets large and/or distributed component based development efforts where there are many products consisting of similar but different components.
tools4j-config supports long-running enterprise Java applications with a framework for handling configuration changes without restarting. It also aids in developing applications which are decoupled from knowing how and where to store, retrieve, and validate configurations. The aim is to liberate applications to use configurations seamlessly on the terms of their particular environment, without constraining them to Java SE, EE, OSGi, Spring, CDI, or any other programming model or framework.
Archivist is a network device configuration archiving and versioning program. It uses Subversion as its revision control system. Its multithreaded design makes it quite fast and thus suitable for operation on large networks with thousands of network devices. It supports Cisco IOS, Cisco CatOS, Juniper JUNOS, and Brocade/Foundry MLX series, but it can be easily extended to support any SSH or telnet-based network device by creating your own config download and post-processing scripts.
Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is based on an operational model in which the specification can be used to validate and optionally change the state of clients, but in a feature unique to bcfg2 the client's response to the specification can also be used to assess the completeness of the specification. Using this feature, bcfg2 provides an objective measure of how good a job an administrator has done in specifying the configuration of client systems. Bcfg2 is therefore built to help administrators construct an accurate, comprehensive specification. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states. It is designed to gracefully cope with manual system modifications. Bcfg2 can also enable the construction of complex change management and deployment strategies.
SPM (formerly known as SPAM) is a set of tools that help manage change in an AIX environment. It uses a client-server architecture and is focused on five functional areas: collection of configuration, reporting configuration changes, comparing configurations, extracting configuration, and searching for configuration changes. Each of these functional areas also includes reporting and export capabilities. The collection of configuration is achieved by installing a client package on all systems being managed. The SPM Server provides a Web interface for reporting and examining configuration changes.
