jWordConvert is a Java library which can read and render Word documents natively to convert to PDF, to convert to images, or to print the documents automatically. The library is 100% Java, so it can run on any platform which supports Java. It does not use any third party software or native calls, and can be run in a server environment or integrated into a desktop application.
Game Controller Hack (GCH) allows you to use a game controller (like a game pad or joystick) with games which do not support them. It achieves this by mapping the directional input (like analogue joysticks and directional pads) and button presses to mouse and keyboard events. This allows all types of games to be played, from first person shooters to simple 2D flash games.
