Scalaffinity is a library providing core functionality for any social networking Web site based on ratings and recommendations. In other words, it is a generic collective intelligence library. Examples of such sites are Anobii, Rate Your Music, and Filmaffinity. It is designed to act as an out-of-the-box model for such Web applications. Nevertheless, Scalaffinity is fully customizable, extensible, and scalable. It incorporates lessons learned while reading "Collective Intelligence in Action" by Satnam Alag.
i-net Doqua is an Eclipse plug-in that helps documentation writers and developers to keep track of inconsistencies between style guides and the actual documentation. The system integrates into the Eclipse IDE and introduces a new perspective and several views. Since i-net Doqua uses standard JUnit testcases to check the documentation, you can trigger checks using Hudson or similar Ant based systems.
jSmaTeP assists in the use of Java for processing import and export data by configuring a data structure rather than by programming it. The structure of the import data is specified in an XML file. jSmaTeP then generates a value object representing exactly one row or record in the import file based on a given XML data configuration. This means that if the import or export format changes, only the XML data configuration needs to be changed to match it.
Test::Class provides a simple way of creating classes and objects to test your Perl code in an xUnit style. Built using Test::Builder, it was designed to work with other Test::Builder-based modules. You can easily package your tests as classes/modules rather than *.t scripts. This simplifies reuse, documentation, and distribution, encourages refactoring, and allows tests to be extended by inheritance.
Mistletoe is a JUnit extension intended for integration testing. In technical terms, it is a JUnit test suite runner presenting the test results via HTTP as a Web page. Mistletoe, when incorporated within an application, will help diagnose integration issues. For example, an application that runs perfectly in the developer's environment may not run properly in the production environment due to configuration errors and connectivity issues. Instead of perusing log files, or looking at stack traces, mistletoe will run a user-specified series of tests and present the results in the form of a Web page served by the application itself. Since the tests are run within the context of the deployed application, given an appropriate test suite, you can home in on integration problems quickly and conveniently.
MASH is a modular, automated script harness. It allows users to implement simple harnesses that perform work external to a system. The framework will invoke that harness as outlined by an XML script. For example, when using the framework to test a system you could create a script that cleans and loads a database, FTPs some data, submits a login form, and verifies HTTP information. Harnesses can easily be built to do almost anything (many harnesses are provided), not just Web page verification. While harnesses are written in Java, the scripts may be run against any type of system as harnesses are intended to act as clients.
Enforcer is an exception simulation and fault injection tool for Java. In a typical test suite, many possible exceptions (such as for input/output) are not covered. Each method call that may throw exceptions may have an effect on the program, but systematic testing of this is hard. Enforcer will run all JUnit-based unit tests, analyze exception coverage, and re-run an instrumented version of your program which automatically tests all exceptions. Step by step, Enforcer generates exceptions at different code locations. This forces execution to go through previously uncovered exceptions. By analyzing the unit test structure first, Enforcer is much more efficient than other fault injection tools.
