Ansible is a radically simple deployment, configuration, and command execution framework. It is dead simple and painless to extend. Extending Ansible does not require programming in any particular language; you can write modules as scripts or programs which return simple JSON. It’s also trivially easy to just execute useful shell commands.
Bear is a lightweight remote automation tool for Groovy/Java/JVM. It allows you to deploy projects, setup your cluster, and install software to your remote machines. It differs from other existing tools in that it uses a programmatic approach - your deployment is a regular Java class. It also uses static types, chained method calls, FP, and fluent programming techniques.
BitNami Tomcat Stack Native Installer is an easy-to-install environment to develop and deploy Java applications. It includes pre-configured, ready-to-run versions of Apache, Tomcat, MySQL, and Java. Users can get the environment up and running in minutes after answering a few questions.
EBuild is a software project build, dependency management, and reporting technology. The aim is to be able to tackle any build problem in a structured, declarative, and elegant way. It is written in Java, but can be used to build all manner of projects and is extensible via a plugin interface. It is best compared to something like Maven (and in some respects Ivy). It aims to overcome certain design flaws and the resultant unnecessary complexity. The EBuild build model is general, but plugins need to be written in a JVM compatible language. Existing plugins all deal with the Java ecosystem, so EBuild is most suitable for Java and mixed technology software projects.
The ERPXE project simplifies the process of installing and customizing a multi-boot PXE server. Over 100 different plugins are available for download, including Windows, WinPE, Hiren’s Boot CD, Acronis True Image, Symantec Ghost, FOG, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, openSUSE, Gentoo, RIP Linux, Slackware, Backtrack, PartedMagic, and many more.
Graviton Reference System stores your IT departments domain knowledge into a single configuration point for servers and desktops running Linux. It allows you to keep your computer systems synchronized, clean, and up-to-date, and makes it incredibly easy to recover a system or an entire enterprise of systems in case of disaster. Instead of deploying a single image to your systems, it allows hosts to be subscribed to the applications and packages they actually need. Global changes can be made in one place.
INPUTsys Exe Packer creates executables with a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and additional files embedded. When the packed application starts, the JRE files will be extracted to a temporary directory. The minimum size of the resulting executable file is 13MB. No ahead of time (AOT) compilation is done; the Hotspot compiler is used. There is a Java system property which points to the extracted directory, so your Java application can use whatever files have been packed into the executable.
