JCards is a Java application designed to store and manage data in any format that the user defines. Instead of having multiple applications/spreadsheets/databases to manage passwords, tasks, shopping lists, etc., JCards allows the user to define a database that contains the fields they want. This is accomplished via an easy to use interface that requires no understanding of SQL or any other database jargon. JCards was initially developed for PDAs, but has now branched into another version that is suitable for the modern desktop environment and includes a number of extra features.
JExpress is a Java installer builder and auto-updater. It gives you your choice of a standalone installer, including both native and cross platform installers and updaters for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Solaris, or a Java Web Start one-click install. You create your installer quickly with your choice of a simple wizard or a powerful advanced interface, both included. You can bundle the exact JVM you want with your installer. The auto-updater gives you a continuous revenue stream after the sale. Your software is always up-to-date, so your customers have fewer problems. You also get all the features you expect in a top end installer. Your Java application becomes a native program just like any other. On Windows it's an EXE, on Mac OS X an app bundle, etc. If you need something really special, you can customize your installer by adding simple Java classes. You can even get a source license at a reasonable price.

KBACKUP is intended for handling of backups no matter whether they reside on disk or tape or even in files. As most other backup programs available today are either confusing the user with lots of long command line options, or user friendly but not powerful at all, the aim behind writing KBACKUP was to provide a user friendly yet powerful backup program. It is also intended to be kept compatible to existing and well proven archive formats, so you can restore your archives even if you should not have KBACKUP around anymore.
