Eigenbase Resource Generator (ResGen) generates wrapper classes for Java resource bundles. The generated classes contain a 'get' method for every resource string, with parameters appropriate to the parameters embedded in the resource string. If the resource is some kind of exception, it also generates a 'new' method to create an instance of that exception. C++ generation is also supported.
The Gettext Commons project provides Java classes for internationalization through GNU gettext and Java ResourceBundles. This makes it possible to use the original text instead of custom property keys, which is less cumbersome and makes programs easier to read. It supports the easy extraction of user visible strings, marks strings as fuzzy when the original text changes to allow translators to check translations, powerful plural handling, and build process integration through Maven.
Jaffa (Java Application Framework For All) is an enterprise-focused Java framework for rapid application development. It provides a complete Java Web application development stack, extending exsiting projects like Tomcat and Struts at the frontend with MVC-based web widgets, all the way through to a high-performance lightweight O/R persistence engine, with plenty of rich features in between including rules engines, declarative application, and data security. In addition to the runtime framework, there is a suite of component templates and other tools for rapid application development, including a TogetherSoft plug-in for UML intergration.
The zen Platform is a Java development environment for J2SE/J2EE. It eases and accelerates the Java application development by visual methods (RAD). Complete applications can be modelled in an intuitive fashion without the need for technical expertise. The complexity of Java and J2EE programming is tremendously hidden - reducing the learning curve for Java novices. Java experts are by no means restricted - they may apply their knowledge without limitations. Application flexibility is a core feature of the platform, which is delivered as an Eclipse plugin.
