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.
ICS is an inter-process configuration sharing system. It allows one process to act as the master and manage the configuration backing storage, while other processes transparently connect to the master using an ICS::Controller::Slave class, which has the same API as the ICS::Controller::Master class and allows them to use the configuration and subscribe to changes as if the process were hosting the master controller. It is useful for projects that use multiple processes but don't want to use a desktop-wide configuration system like GConf. A demonstration is included.
Crash Dummy is a Java Web application to help IT professionals set up Java application server environments.

tadedon is a set of utilities that form a foundation for applications written with one of the many Java frameworks, such as GWT, GIN, Guice, Google App Engine, commons-configuration, and many others. It lets you specify the default configuration of your application and upgrade it automatically on each new release. It can redirect all java.util.logging to slf4j and easily configure logback. It can bind application configuration in a Guice module. It supports @PostConstruct and @PreDestroy annotations (JSR 250) in Guice applications. It lets you annotate your methods with @Transactional annotation. It supports Guice injector stage in your Web application. It lets you test your Guice managed servlets and filters without needing a real servlet container. It lets you use Guice Matchers for matching super class, interface, and type literal annotations. It can inject event bus to your GWT applications with the help of GIN.
Morpheus is a Perl module that implements a configuration engine that completely separates config consumers from config providers. Consumers can obtain configuration values by using this module or the morph script. Configuration values are bound to various nodes in the global configuration tree, similar to a virtual file system. Consumers can ask for any node or for any subtree. Providers are plugins which can populate the configuration tree from any sources, such as local configuration files, configuration database, and the environment. The overall program configuration is merged together from all data provided by plugins.
