Access Control Designer is a universal modular tool for visually designing access control policies. The user of this system depicts requirements for the designed security policy in a graphical notation based on a generally accepted security model. The tool will then generate a configuration of security mechanisms, which will be used for the implementation of the security policy. Modularity of the tool will allow users to design security policies for a lot of various environments - systems needed to have access controlled. A pluggable module API allows third-party programmers to provide ACD modules for systems and so allow users to use ACD for designing access control policies for the systems.
AntInstaller is a flexible front end for deploying applications using Ant build files as the engine. It provides a Swing GUI and a command line alternative for situations (such as server deployment) when X is not available. The installer is designed by creating an XML config file that describes the various pages of the installer and the input required from the user. The input is validated and can be dates, directories, options selected from a list, or other structured input. Once the properties are selected, AntInstaller runs and calls the selected targets. Primarily, it is designed for installing Java apps in a user-friendly way, but can be used for anything that requires structured input for Ant scripts.

Apollo is an open-source developer test skeleton toolkit for Java Web Start/JNLP. It lets you turbo-charge Web Start apps without Web Start to speed up your compile/run/test/debug/goof-off cycle, avoiding the hassle of stuffing, signing, uploading, or downloading your jars every time you rearrange a comma in your source code.
BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.
The CPAN shell (and module) automates or at least simplifies the building and installation of Perl modules and extensions. It includes some primitive searching capabilities and knows how to use Net::FTP, LWP, and certain external download clients to fetch distributions from the Internet. Then it automatically tests and installs them and their dependencies.
Helpcore is an enterprise grade help and servicedesk application. It acts as a central information hub for everybody that is involved in the help and service desk process.
