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.
JWAA is a software framework for building dynamic Web applications as networks of first-class Java objects. XML is used for representing information normally coded as HTML. The XML files are automatically reloaded when they change. It has a "persistent forms" feature in which form data automatically persists in the database such that fields behave like pieces of paper that automatically preserve what's written on them. This default behavior is easily overridden. Invalid links are reported at XML load time via the browser, and are also recorded in log files.
OpenIsis provides a library and tools to access CDS/ISIS databases, which are mostly used for bibliographic data (ISO2709, Z39.50) but also well suited for other catalogues due to the very flexible indexing mechanism. Based on a C library, there are also bindings for Perl and Java (Tcl to come).
The Oculus Layout System supplies a Java layout API, and an easy-to-use visual builder, which works with both Swing and AWT. Main features include a proprietary stretching model, which enables the system to automatically infer how to properly stretch almost any user interface, and a cursor-based layout paradigm which dramatically improves the readability and maintainability of the layout code.
Ice is a modern alternative to object middleware such as CORBA or COM/DCOM/COM+. It is easy to learn, yet provides a powerful network infrastructure for demanding technical applications. It features an object-oriented specification language, easy to use C++ and Java mappings, a highly efficient protocol (including protocol compression), asynchronous method invocation and dispatch, dynamic transport plug-ins, TCP/IP and UDP/IP support, SSL-based security, a firewall solution, and much more.
Sval is a Web service which charts the closing price of a stock listed on the American Bourses versus the closing values of the DJIA, NASDAQ, and S&P500 over a given period of time. The chart is returned to the user as a SOAP message attachment in PNG, JPEG, or SVG format. This project is a testbed for investigating a wide variety of Web service technologies by implementing the same Sval Web service using different architectures.
Bambookit GUI is a completely XML-scriptable user interface to build real-time interactive Web application front-ends. Applications occupy 100 Kb of device memory and run on any Java-enabled browser. Users can move windows, resize containers, scroll and sort tables, lists, trees, see real-time data display, use a layout manager, and more. All rendering and event handling is managed in the XML scripts.
The 3D Stacked Horizontal Bar Graph provides versatile components so that Web authors and Java developers can easily build and publish dynamic and interactive bar graphs. There are multiple data access methods, including database binding, a file reader, and an HTML page reader. This component also provides the ability to interact with other page components.
elemenope is an Enterprise Application Integration, Service Oriented Architecture, and general messaging framework. It provides the capability for massive decoupling of an enterprise's components through standardized interfaces for communications. It provides complete abstraction of both transmission protocol and functional components. A project may connect components via a particular protocol standard, and completely change the protocol technology deployed with a simple change to a configuration file, i.e. no code changes. It implements the following connector sets: JMS, SOAP, XML-RPC, direct call, and native IBM MQSeries. It allows an organization to easily create a large scale multi-platform application to conduct messaging or transaction processing. It simplifies architecture of large systems by standardizing functional components and message pathways.
