ClassPublic.java is a Java .class file converter which makes a Java class public and non-final, its fields public, and its methods public and non-final. ClassPublic.java has a compact implementation, depending only on J2SE 1.5.0 or newer. ClassPublic.java can be used to increase interoperability and code reusability of a .class file whose .java source is not available or is not feasible to recompile.
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.
The Fressia Project is an effort to develop a framework for testing automation. It's intended for users (testers) who want a simple tool that can be used just out of the box. It was originally conceived as part of the QA efforts at the US National Optical Astronomy Observatory. It has been delivered to the community because, despite it still being at early stages, it has proven to be a useful general purpose testing tool. It is designed to provide functional testing, system testing, system integration testing, white (black) box testing, automated regression testing, acceptance testing, etc.
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.
Markdown Doclet is a replacement for the standard Sun Java Doclet that allows developers to use Markdown syntax in their Javadoc comments rather than embedding unreadable HTML. The advantage of Markdown is that the syntax allows for HTML to be passed through, allowing the Markdown doclet to be applied to any existing codebase which may contain HTML Javadoc comments. It also includes a patched version of UMLGraph which calls the Markdown Doclet instead of the Sun standard doclet. The doclet also writes a more modern stylesheet for more attractive Javadocs.
