Spring is a lightweight Java/J2EE application framework based on code published in "Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development" by Rod Johnson. It includes powerful JavaBeans-based configuration management applying Inversion-of-Control principles, a generic abstraction layer for transaction management allowing for pluggable transaction managers, a JDBC abstraction layer, integration with Hibernate, JDO, Apache OJB, and iBATIS SQL Maps, AOP functionality, and a flexible MVC Web application framework with multiple view technologies. There is also a .NET port available.
KeePass is a light-weight and easy-to-use password manager that removes the need for you to remember many different passwords and makes it more feasible to use different passwords for each account. It manages your passwords in a secure database encrypted with AES and Twofish, which is locked with one master key or a key file.
DotNetWikiBot Framework is a full-featured client API with a console interface that allows you to build programs and Web robots easily to manage information on MediaWiki-powered sites. DotNetWikiBot Framework is intended to help with many complicated and routine tasks of wiki site development and maintenance. Any .NET language can be used to access DotNetWikiBot library functions. Only minimal programming skills are required to make bots with DotNetWikiBot Framework.
Auto Project Planner automatically calculates a proper project plan based on your effort estimations and the due dates you have in mind. A list of tasks and a list of employees can be defined. Tasks can be assigned to one or more employees. It is also possible to define a maximum percentage value an employee can/should work on a task. Public holidays, leaves, weekly working hours, and more parameters can be specified and are considered in the calculation. According to this input, the software computes time plans by minimizing the MSE (mean squared error) between expected and computed end dates.
Duplicati is a backup system and an implementation of Duplicity. Duplicati enables you to set up and monitor backups on Windows or Linux. Duplicati is based on the Linux-only Duplicity backup system. Duplicati has a very user friendly interface that allows you to configure and monitor your backups. It supports backing up to a variety of destinations, such as a network folder, a USB disk, a remote FTP server, a remote SSH server, Amazon S3 storage, or a WebDAV enabled server. All backups can be encrypted and are digtally signed, so that no other person can read or tamper with the backed up data.
CVS, GIT, and Mercurial as well as other well-known version control systems cannot version directories. In other words, you cannot add empty directories. A "workaround" for this issue is to use placeholder files that are placed into empty directories. These placeholder files can then be committed into the repository and will make sure that, upon checkout, the directory tree is entirely reconstructed. The problem with using placeholder files is that you need to create them, and need to delete them if they are not necessary anymore (because sub-directories or real files were added). With big source trees, managing these placeholder files can be cumbersome and error prone. MarkEmptyDirs can manage the creation/deletion of such placeholder files automatically. It creates placeholder files in all empty "leaf" directories. If later on new files or directories are put into such directories, the placeholder files are not necessary anymore, and are removed automatically.
Zyan Communication Framework simplifies development of distributed applications. It works on Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and Android platforms via .NET or Mono runtimes. It features LINQ support for three-tier applications, full duplex TCP support, traffic, compression, and encryption, transparent support for events and EBC (event-based components), and Windows and LDAP authentication support.
