TOPCASED stands for Toolkit in OPen source for Critical Applications and SystEm Development. It is a system and software engineering workshop based on Eclipse. It aims to provide the tools required to go from requirements to the implementation stages. Focused on modeling development engineering, it includes several graphical editors (for ECORE, UML, SysML, SAM, AADL, and more), an OCL rules editor and checker, several code generators (SMUC, UML2C, UML2Java, UML2Python), a document generator, gPM (a ticket tracker), xHDL tools, Tramway (a requirements traceability framework), and more. External tools can be easily connected to the workshop through its API or models.
Eclipse Code Recommender is an intelligent code recommender system which seamlessly integrates into Eclipse's Code Assist, and predicts only those method calls that are likely to be used by a developer in the current (code) situation. It can currently predict method calls for instances of the SWT framework, such as SWT Buttons, Labels, and Texts.
GlassFish Tools Bundle for Eclipse is an Eclipse distribution containing Eclipse Java EE 6 tooling. GlassFish 3 Java EE 6 is preconfigured, and optionally a JDK 1.6 all-in-one single installer is provided for XP, Mac OS X, OpenSolaris, or Linux. The GlassFish plugin for Eclipse provides the Application Server WTP adapter to enable Java EE development.
Visual Paradigm for UML (VP-UML) is a powerful, cross-platform, and easy-to-use visual UML modeling and CASE tool. It provides software developers with a cutting edge development platform to build quality applications faster, better, and cheaper. It facilitates excellent interoperability with other CASE tools and most of the leading IDEs.
Saros is a Eclipse plugin for collaborative text editing that in particular targets distributed pair programming (also called remote pair programming), but can support arbitrarily many participants at once. All members of a session have an identical copy of an Eclipse project and Saros keeps these copies in sync as editing progresses.
DatabaseToUML reverse engineers a database schema from an existing relational JDBC database. Tables and fields are reversed to classes and attributes, constraints are reversed to association, and tables composed only of foreign keys are converted to many-to-many associations. The main idea is to reuse the reversed model in a generator, taking UML2.x (EMF XMI 2.0/2.1) models as input.
Sunrise Sunset is a Python package that can determine the sunrise and sunset based on a given altitude zenith. It has two public methods. The first returns the sunrise and sunset in a tuple. The second returns True or False depending on whether the supplied date/time is during the night or day. The constructor takes three arguments, a date, latitude, and longitude. There is one keyword argument for changing the default zenith, which is set to "official". The zeniths are "official", "civil", "nautical", "amateur" (astronomical), and "astronomical". It does not rely on third party packages, but you may need something like pytz to create dates with timezone info.
Zowie.Fractals is a plugin for the popular Eclipse IDE that lets the user explore the set of complex numbers in the Mandelbrot set. When rendered visually, these can be quite distracting, and even pretty. It features intuitive mouse usage, the ability to load and save your work as PNG files, the ability to change the number of iterations, and full editor history integration.
