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.
gedcom4j is a Java library for loading (parsing) and saving GEDCOM 5.5 or 5.5.1 files to/from a Java object hierarchy, which can be manipulated by your code as you see fit. Please note that gedcom4j is not an application. It is a library for parsing, manipulating, and writing GEDCOM data in your own programs.
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.
jRapidRPC is a Java RPC library that allows you to create client-server applications that talk in objects. It is small, fast, and extensible. Its smallness helps you learn how to use the library quickly. jRapidRPC is fast due to its compact size and lack of complexity. Also, it uses the ProtoStuff serializer by default. jRapidRPC's extensibility allows you to can write a new client-server or a new serializer.
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".
SDMetrics Core is a Java library to calculate metrics of structural design properties such as coupling, size, and complexity for UML designs. It also checks design rules to automatically detect incomplete or incorrect design, and adherence to style guidelines such as circular dependencies or naming conventions. The library provides an XMI parser for import of XMI 1.x files with UML1.3/1.4 models, and XMI 2.0/2.1 files with UML 2.x models. Design metrics, rules, and XMI import are highly customizable.
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.
