Hippojump is an alert management application that allows you to track RSS, XML, HTML, and Web services with specific keywords, and deliver the results to devices such as desktop, email, and SMS. It is an Eclipse-based RCP application, and is extensible via plugins. Examples of alerts include notification of movies with reviews of greater than 70%, of news that match certain keywords, of travel deals that relate to a cruise in a particular place, and of good deals on tickets to shows or famous destinations.
The ZDT (Zhongwen Development Tool) is a program written to help users study Mandarin Chinese. Users can create their own word lists and quiz themselves using three different flashcard modes. There is also a dictionary that can be used to search through the built in CEDICT (and optional Adso) databases. Users can input Chinese characters and get the associated pinyin and English definitions through the Annotation function. This makes it convenient to read blocks of Chinese text. The program is built on top of the Eclipse RCP platform, which allows it to be extendable through its plugin architecture. It runs on Linux, OS X, and Windows platforms.
