JORA will simplify your development of database applications, establishing implicit mapping between relational database tables and Java classes. JORA uses JDBC for database connection, so it can be used with any database supporting JDBC or ODBC. JORA also allows you to use object-oriented features, such as polymorphism and complex objects, in your database applications.
XmlBlaster is XML based MOM (Message oriented Middleware) with a lot of features. It is a publish/subscribe and point-to-point MOM server which exchanges XML-encoded messages. Communication with the server is based on CORBA (using JacORB), RMI, XML-RPC, native socket, or a persistent HTTP plugin. Subscribers can use XPath expressions to filter the messages they wish to receive and add their own MIME-based filter plugins. C/C++, Java, Perl, Python, VisualBasic.net, C#, and PHP client demos are included in the xmlBlaster test suite, and Tcl and Python demo clients are scheduled. XmlBlaster also provides a browser callback framework, allowing browsers (Netscape, Mozilla, MSIE) to receive instant callbacks over a persistent http connection. A security plugin framework allows authentication/authorization in many ways. Currently there are LDAP- and passwd-based plugins available.
The PoolMan library and virtual JDBC2.0 driver provide Java object pooling, with particular extensions for database resources and caching SQL queries/results across multiple databases. PoolMan eliminates a common bottleneck in enterprise apps and maximizes JDBC performance for servlets, Java Server Pages, and other Java database applications.
gnu.hylafax implements the HylaFAX client network protocol in pure Java. With it, Java applications can access a HylaFAX server in various ways, such as queueing FAX jobs, checking server/job status, and retrieving FAX files. The gnu.hylafax distribution also includes gnu.inet.ftp, a pure Java implementation of FTP client protocol (RFC0959).
y-notes is a set of lightweight applets and CGI scripts which enables a webmaster to specify points where the website's visitors may leave 'sticky notes'. The notes are kept on the server so that users can retrieve them at a later time and use them as a navigation aid. y-notes are particularly useful in large sites such as tutorials and reference manuals. They can also be used in web pages as a fairly uncomplicated way of gathering user feedback which requires no registration, logins, or passwords.
