Sequoia provides high availability and performance scalability for databases. It is is the continuation of the C-JDBC project. It provides transparent database clustering (partitioning, replication, etc.). It works with any Java application without code modification and with any database engine. It has been successfully tested with Tomcat, JBoss, JOnAS, WebSphere, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Apache Derby, HSQLDB, SAP DB, Oracle, DB2, Sybase, MS SQL Server, Firebird, and more.
XMLProperties is a utility class which stores and retrieves property lists (key-value/s pairs) from an XML document. It is in a way similar to the java.util.Properties file but with one main difference: it can store more than one property value for a given property key. Each property key corresponds to an XMLPropertyValues object which may contain one or more property values.
jPDFWriter is a Java class library to create PDF documents directly from Java programs without having to install any third party drivers or software. It emulates the standard Java classes to print and draw graphics to reduce the learning curve when using the library and reuse existing code. It can create PDF files in two ways: PDF files can be created directly using jPDFWriter's very simple API (simply create a PDFDocument object, create as many PDFPage objects as necessary, draw strings, graphics, or any other elements supported by Graphics2D to the pages, and save the document), or jPDFWriter can extend the standard Java PrinterJob to create PDF files as though printing to a physical printer. This allows reuse of existing printing code and lets an application decide, at runtime, whether to send the output to a printer or to a PDF file. PDF files can be saved to files on a disk, written to a java.io.OutputStream, or written directly to a javax.servlet.ServletOutputStream to show in a browser when working within a J2EE application server. jPDFWriter is written entirely in Java, so application portability and operating system independence are not compromised.
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.
