The Internet Document And Report Server (IDRS) is a full Web development platform. All pages are built using an XML like dialect called the Reporting Markup Language (RML), can be generated using data from any JDBC complient database, and mostly require no programming logic. For reports that do require programming logic, RML pages can also use external Java classes and embedded JPython and BeanShell scripts for a higher level of control. Features of the IDRS include user-based security, data connection pooling for use by both the central IDRS system and by individual reports, and multiple databases to be used for each report and JSP.

Spindle is a plugin for the Eclipse Platform that provides excellent IDE support for Web apps developed using the Tapestry framework. It includes wizards for creating applications and application components. Editors for applications, libraries, pages, components, and templates, all with popup help, syntax completion, and "as you type validation" are included. A project build process catches and marks almost every runtime Tapestry error before you deploy your application.
Code Librarian is a Web frontend to CVS repositories, conceptually a merge of Bonsai and ViewCVS/cvsweb. It allows browsing recent commits to the repositories monitored by date as well as browsing the repository by path as a tree of files and their revisions. Colored unidiffs are shown in popup layers one click away from any browse view, and the interface tries to be both clean and powerful, without scaring away the novice user.
Presenting XML is a Java Web application framework for presenting HTML, PDF, WML, etc. in a device independent manner. It supports various kinds of content, including XML files, dynamic content, SQL result sets, and flat files. It provides a declarative way for applying filters and XSLT transforms to a stream of XML content in a pipeline. It allows user defined filters and serializers written as Java plug-ins. It is component based and extendable. Presenting XML may be used as a command line tool or as a framework for a servlet-based Web application.
Jamon is a text template engine for Java that is useful for generating dynamic HTML, XML, or any text-based content. It has a rich feature set that supports encapsulation, parameterization, functional decomposition, and reuse of presentation logic. Because it is compiled to non-reflective Java code, and statically type-checked, Jamon is ideally suited to supporting refactoring of template-based UI applications. Templates declare the arguments they require for rendering, including dynamic template content ("fragments"), and are translated into Java classes with public methods whose signatures reflect the arguments declared in the templates. This provides compile-time type- checking as well as excellent performance.
