Velocity is a Java-based template engine. It permits anyone to use the simple yet powerful template language to reference objects defined in Java code. When Velocity is used for Web development, Web designers can work in parallel with Java programmers to develop Web sites according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) model, meaning that Web page designers can focus solely on creating a site that looks good, and programmers can focus solely on writing top-notch code. Velocity separates Java code from the Web pages, making the web site more maintainable over the long run and providing a viable alternative to Java Server Pages (JSPs) or PHP. Velocity also provides template services for the Turbine Web application framework, making a template service that allows Web applications to be developed according to a true MVC model.
JSpell is a server-based spell checker that allows you to spell check any HTML input field and form. It is i18n compliant and has dialogs for multiple languages available. It can be used to add spell checking capabilities to HTML forms on your Web site. This spell checker is compatible with JSP, ASP, CGI, PHP, Cold Fusion, Oracle Forms, etc.
Uncle Unc is a framework for working with trees of objects. Existing services such as filesystems, code libraries, networks, log files, mailboxes and directories can be mapped onto this object tree, as can some traditional desktop applications. User interfaces work directly with the object tree, offering best of breed interface design (e.g. filtering, breadcrumb bars, paging, sorting, and file-explorer-like views) across the full range of services. The framework promotes clean design, completeness of representation, and reusability of both front end and back end code.
XMLCoDe is a Java implementation of an XML Coder/Decoder. It provides tools for easily and automatically serializing/deserializing Java objects to/from XML strings or streams. It provides a way to easily implement an XML persistent object model. It features support for a scheme for accessors methods use, support for an advanced inheritance scheme, native support for array, vector, and hashtable data structures, an extensible package (support for more complex data structures through quick and efficient accessors use), and much more.
ALF is a native logging framework for Java with the unique advantage of supporting automated method tracing. This platform-independent library allows developers to debug their applications quickly without adding any code. By simply adding an argument to the JVM, you will get immediate method tracing, which can be filtered by package or class and sent to the console or a file. You can also use the ALF logging library to integrate information, warning, error, or exception statements into the output.
