CRest (Client REST) is a lightweight library that simplifies the integration of third party RESTful services into Java applications. CRest is mainly annotation-driven, allowing the developer to focus on the essential aspects of the integration of a REST service, such as the definition of the Java interface that maps the remote REST methods and the data model the interface will deal with. The rest is achieved by annotating a plain Java interface with the relevant information such as the service end-point, the desired timeouts, URL formats, etc. CRest will handle everything else, including HTTP request generation, auto marshalling of the response, and more.
JAML (Java Application Markup Language) is a library for easier development of Java applications. It does this by allowing a declarative XML-based design of user interfaces. Although targeting the Java Swing Framework, it is extensible to initialize practically every Java object. A key aspect of the technology is the reduced complexity of JAML as opposed to the standard Java syntax.
The Java Wikipedia API (Bliki engine) is a parser library for converting Wikipedia/Mediawiki syntax to HTML. It supports wiki tags for bold, italic, headers, nowiki, source, table of contents, tables, lists, categories, footnotes (references), images, syntax highlighting of source code fragments, templates, and template parser functions.
MDIFramework provides a ready-to-use architecture to ease the creation MDI-style applications in Java. It takes care of the overall architecture of the main window of the application, with a tabbed architecture, the presence of an HTML printable message area, and so on. It provides a generic API to manage lengthy actions, keeping the interface responsive, and taking care that actions are performed one at a time, without having to bother about it. It can add metadata to already opened files. It manages loading and unloading of external plugins at runtime.
NW.ORM is a simple wrapper for accessing databases using hibernate in Java. It makes working with multiple databases easy. Aside from adding dependencies to your project and placing your hibernate configuration files in your classpath, no extra configuration is required. NW.ORM provides base classes for JPA-based class definitions. You can query using your method of choice. NW.ORM supports Criteria, HQL, and raw SQL.
Property Binder is a Java library that provides typed access to entries in properties files. It offers such access by allowing a programmer to provide it a Java interface whose methods represent the keys of the properties file. The methods can be annotated to indicate what property the method represents, what default value(s) it should assume if the property is not present, and what pattern separates the individual values of multi-valued properties.
Simple Java Mail aims to be the simplest to use lightweight mailing framework for Java, while being able to send complex email messages including attachments and embedded images. The Simple Java Mail framework essentially is a wrapper around the JavaMail SMTP mailing API that allows users to define email messages on a high abstraction level without having to deal with terminology such as "multipart" and "mimemessage".
SimpleTemplate is a simple template engine written in Java. You can generate formatted text from a Java bean. You can use it for generating XML files, Web sites, etc. It features simple template directives, user-selectable template directive separators, alias creation using with and set directives, support for indexing into arrays, collections, and maps, looping on an array or a collection, a simple include mechanism to reuse template files, conditional evaluation using if and ifelse, and custom list separation settings (prefix, suffix, and separators). Template files can be read from the filesystem, class path, or just a string. Support for methods, aka. sub templates.
