The DataBean package is a Java library that provides features for mapping a database table to a Java class (databean). The coding of the databean class must conform to a preset pattern so that the instances of the databean classes can perform common database operations without using much of the ugly SQL. DataBean is functional, stable, light-weight, and easy to use. It can make your application much easier to write when dealing with relatively unsophisticated database operations.
Secure FTP API for Java is a collection of classes that allows you to add secure file transfer capabilities to your Java applications. It has a complete implementation of the File Transfer Protocol as defined RFC 959, and support for secure file transfer using SSL/TLS as defined in RFC 2228. Both explicit and implicit SSL connections are supported. It has an extendable architecture to support legacy/non-standard FTP servers, event notification to notify the connection and transfer events to interested objects, support for active and passive data transfers, support for ASCII and binary data types, and the ability to set the timeouts and buffer size to use for the control and data connections.
Athena Framework for Java is a full fledged enterprise object-relational mapping (ORM) framework that employs metadata as mapping configuration. It greatly simplifies Java Web application development by removing the requirement of manual mapping and manual database schema updating. In addition to features like Java object persistence, powerful EJBQL querying execution, and comprehensive code generation, Athena has built-in support for multi-tenancy, which enables developers to build cloud applications easily. Athena can be easily integrated with other libraries like Struts or Spring to provide full stacks of service.
StelsCSV is a JDBC driver that allows performing SQL statements and other JDBC operations upon text files (comma separated, tab-separated, fixed length, etc.). Using this driver, users can easily create a simple database consisting of plain text files. The driver can be used for writing data importing programs and migration tools. It supports most keywords of ANSI SQL92, table joins, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements, data types, aggregate, converting, string, and user-defined SQL functions.
BlueJ is an interactive Java development environment. It provides a unique user interface that presents a graphical display of the application classes and their relationships, and it lets users interactively create objects of any class. Once objects have been created, users can interact with them directly. This interaction mechanism allows for much greater testing and experimentation than in conventional environments. BlueJ is suited for teaching and learning OO and Java.
PDFTextStream is a PDF text and metadata extraction library available for Java and .NET. It supports all versions of the PDF document specification (including v1.7, used by Acrobat 8, 9, and X), extraction of text encoded using double-byte character sets (including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean), decryption of documents encrypted using 40-bit, 128-bit, 256-bit, and variable bit length ciphers, and extraction of all document metadata provided by PDF documents (including form data, bookmarks, and annotations). Easy integration with Jakarta Lucene is included, as well as interactive form update capability.
Doodle is a desktop search engine for Linux. It searches your hard drive for files using pattern matching on meta-data. It extracts file-format specific meta-data using libextractor and builds a suffix tree to index the files. The index can then be searched rapidly. It is similar to locate, but can take advantage of information such as ID3 tags. It is possible to do full-text indexing using the appropriate libextractor plugins. It also supports using FAM to keep the database up-to-date.
PDFreactor is a formatting processor to convert HTML and XML to PDF. It uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to define page layout and styles. It allows you to dynamically generate PDF documents such as invoices, delivery notes, shipping documents, or print versions of Web content on-the-fly. Vector graphics (SVG), barcodes, MathML, XSLT, and CMYK colors are supported. All common J2EE application servers are supported. Complete .NET, PHP, Perl, Python, and Ruby APIs are included. Direct integration into automatic build processes using Apache Ant is also possible.
