The goal of dzo is to treat application database objects the same way the application's source code is treated, with respect to development, revision control, and deployment. Dzo uses a text file that contains native create statements for all database objects and compares them against the actual database-schema. As a result, dzo creates the SQL statements needed to update the database schema (or you can let dzo execute the SQL statements directly). If your application lives in a Tomcat or Java EE application server, dzo has a servlet that controls the deployment process, inspects and executes the necessary database changes, and finally deploys the application. Dzo currently works with HSQLDB, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server (more to come).
Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.

PD4ML is a powerful PDF generating library that uses HTML and CSS for page layout and content definition. It allows developers to easily add PDF generation functionality to software written for the Java and .NET platforms. PD4ML is easy to deploy and does not rely on any native components. It is based on a proprietary HTML rendering engine, optimized for PDF layout generation. The rendering engine implements most standard features of HTML4/CSS2 and a number of custom PDF-generation-specific functions for pagination control, header/footer generation, watermarking, TOC generation, margin control, etc. PD4ML allows you to easily embed word processor documents, spreadsheets, and rich media content as attachments to the resulting PDF documents.
Sustainable IDE (SIDE) is a set of graphical tools for developers who want to build sustainable software. Sustainable software is software you can extend easily, from a functional or technological point of view. On one hand, this means that when a user has a new requirement, it's easy for any developer to add it, even if the original author is not there anymore. On another hand, if you want to change the underlying technologies, you don't need to rewrite your existing application from scratch. Sustainable Software gives you the freedom to change technology, requirements, or achitecture. This can be achieved thanks to the use of models in a model driven software development (MDSD) paradigm.
Oxygen XML Diff is a complete solution for comparing and merging XML files. It offers both directory and file comparison, six different diff algorithms, and multiple levels of comparison. The comparison can also be performed inside ZIP-based archives (ZIP, JAR, ODF, OOXML). Oxygen XML Diff includes two specialized XML-aware comparison algorithms: XML Accurate, tuned for precise comparison, and XML Fast, tuned for speed at the expense of some accuracy.
