AVS is a source configuration management software that embedds a bug tracking feature. It is based on a common file "check-out / check-in" procedure, which eases early conflict detection. A file can have parallel versions. A proprietary 3-way merge tool is bundled to help merging. AVS uses a development task concept, which allows grouping checked-out files for the same purpose. Users can then work on several tasks at once without confusing files. Each development task is natively linked to a change request, which can be linked to several tasks. The build manager then relies on a change request selection within a set, while still being able to unselect some tasks if needed. A user management feature, with groups and access rights, is provided to restrict access to users upon their profile.
The Whole Brain Catalog is a 3D virtual environment to facilitate solutions for currently intractable challenges in brain research. It is meant to enable the synthesis of data measured from brains at different scales into more coherent models of brain structure and function. The Whole Brain Catalog is a client-server platform that provides rich 3D views for researchers to zoom in, out, and around structures deep in a multi-scale spatial framework of the mouse brain. A 3D graphics engine used in graphics-intensive computer gaming generates high-resolution visualizations that bring data to life through biological simulations and animations.
TimeGT is powerful life and task management software that keeps data in sync using a secure server. It offers numerous ways to organize tasks, ideas, and notes. It will suit a wide range of time management techniques used by different people. The following filters are available and can be used in any combination: a project tree of arbitrary depth; task life-cycle supporting Timing folders (supports GTD method); any number of Tags added to a task and used for filtering; and a Start and Due dates based Horizon filter. It keeps tasks up-to-date between any number of computers. Tasks are mediated through the dedicated secure Sync server, and are protected when they travel over the Internet (RSA of adequate length is used). Information is accessible everywhere.
IceScrum is a J2EE application for using Scrum while keeping the spirit of a collaborative workspace. It also offers virtual boards with post-its for sprint backlog, product backlog, and others. The tool offers everything that is in Scrum: role management (Product Owner, ScrumMaster, Team member, and StakeHolder), product backlog management with advanced features for prioritizing stories, Scrum lifecycle including a roadmap view, release planning, sprint backlog as a task board facilitating the Scrum ceremonial management of impediments, and chart production such as burndown charts, velocity charts, and cumulative flow diagrams. It offers others agile practices like a roadmap, vision, user stories, acceptance tests associated with stories, user roles, and planning poker.
Metawidget is a "smart user interface widget" that populates itself, at runtime, with UI components to match the properties of your business objects. Metawidget does this without introducing new technologies. It inspects your existing back-end architecture (such as JavaBeans, existing annotations, existing XML configuration files) and creates widgets native to your existing front-end framework (such as Swing, Java Server Faces, Struts, Android). Metawidget does not replace or hide your existing UI framework and guarantees that your investment in its technology and knowledge is as valid as always.
ProjectForge is a Web-based solution for project management including time sheet booking, Gantt charts, financial administration and controlling, issue management, and managing work-break-down structures. First-party and third-party plugins are supported. Ready-to-run packages of the ProjectForge server are available for Windows, Mac OS X, and all Java6-capable platforms (database and Web server are included). ProjectForge is also available as a web-archive file (war) for usage within your own Web server and for your own database installation.
