Assimilate is a Maven2 plugin that allows developers to import dependencies from other pre-built Maven projects without a formal parent-child hierarchy existing between the projects. There is no limit to the number of project dependencies. Maven 2.0.9's "import" scope acts not on managed dependencies, but on those declared in the dependency management section of the imported pom file. Assimilate, in contrast, is designed to act on managed dependencies of any prebuilt Maven project (stored in the local repository), as though they were declared in the local project's managed dependency section.
Markdown Doclet is a replacement for the standard Sun Java Doclet that allows developers to use Markdown syntax in their Javadoc comments rather than embedding unreadable HTML. The advantage of Markdown is that the syntax allows for HTML to be passed through, allowing the Markdown doclet to be applied to any existing codebase which may contain HTML Javadoc comments. It also includes a patched version of UMLGraph which calls the Markdown Doclet instead of the Sun standard doclet. The doclet also writes a more modern stylesheet for more attractive Javadocs.
terp is a modular template engine that integrates tightly into ANT and provides a portable C++ compiler task (aCC, g++, icc, msvc++, SUN CC, xlC) on many platforms and processor architectures, a collection iterator task, a full-featured expression language with host introspection, formatters, selectors, and transformers for expressions, and much more. It can be embedded into Ant, used as a stand-alone or embedded templating engine, or used as a batch or interactive expression evaluator. It is extremely flexible and can be extended with your own types, operators can be overloaded, and properties and methods can be added to types.
BRAP is a Java remoting protocol that uses native Java object serialization encapsulated in HTTP. It aims to be an alternative to Spring HttpInvoker and Spring Security, especially when you don't need or want the dependencies of Spring in your client, such as when building a rich client application where size might be an issue. The authentication mechanism lets you use your own domain objects as credentials. BRAP gives you "pass by reference" even though the object arguments are serialized and passed to the remote service: changes that happen on the remote side can be applied to the client side automatically. BRAP focuses on being easy to use, small in size, yet powerful and extensible.
