Saros is a Eclipse plugin for collaborative text editing that in particular targets distributed pair programming (also called remote pair programming), but can support arbitrarily many participants at once. All members of a session have an identical copy of an Eclipse project and Saros keeps these copies in sync as editing progresses.
Flat File Reporting allows you to use fixed width files as a data source in IReport designer and Jasper Reports. It uses a record description (which can be XML, Cobol, or RecordEditor Record Layouts) to describe the file format. You can design reports via IReports wizards or by draging and dropping fields onto the report. It can also be used for reports for the RecordEditor and JRecord Projects.
Assimilate is a Maven2 plugin that allows developers to import dependencies from other pre-built Maven projects without a formal parent-child hierarchy existing between the projects. There is no limit to the number of project dependencies. Maven 2.0.9's "import" scope acts not on managed dependencies, but on those declared in the dependency management section of the imported pom file. Assimilate, in contrast, is designed to act on managed dependencies of any prebuilt Maven project (stored in the local repository), as though they were declared in the local project's managed dependency section.
The maven-buildmetadata-plugin is a Maven 2 plugin that helps you easily add build metadata to generated archive artifacts. When a product is running on an application server, this tool can tell you which version of which artifact is currently running on that server, which artifact maps to which source code version in the SCM repository, what configuration set (including profiles and environment variables) has been used to generate the artifact, on which machine was the artifact built, and when was the artifact built. The provided metadata include SCM information, build time, operating system, Java runtime, Maven execution information, build user, build host name, and build version.
