Launch4j is a cross-platform tool for wrapping Java applications distributed as jars in Windows native executables. The executable can be configured to search for a certain JRE version or use a bundled one, and it's possible to set runtime options, like the initial/max heap size. The wrapper also provides better user experience through an application icon, a native pre-JRE splash screen, a custom process name, and a Java download page in case the appropriate JRE cannot be found. The increase in size of the application is small.
MapServer is a CGI based Web mapping application development tool. It processes user defined configuration files and templates to allow for a wide variety of applications to be developed, including interactive mapping, and spatial query definition and processing. It supports several data formats. Key features include scale dependent map rendering, automatic scalebar and legend building, feature labeling with collision avoidance, logical and thematic classifications, and on-the-fly projection of raster and vector data. The application can also access other WMS servers as a cascading map server.
TNV (The Network Visualizer or Time-based Network Visualizer) depicts network traffic by visualizing packets and links between local and remote hosts. It is intended for network traffic analysis to facilitate learning what constitutes 'normal' activity on a network, investigating packet details and security events, or for network troubleshooting. It can open saved libpcap (from tcpdump, windump, ethereal, etc.) formatted files or capture live packets on the wire, and export data in libpcap format or save the data to a MySQL database to enable the examination of trends over time.

exJello is a JavaMail provider that connects to a Microsoft Exchange server (actually, it uses the WebDAV interface exposed by Outlook Web Access). It is designed as a drop-in replacement for the standard POP3 and SMTP providers. This allows you to send and receive messages through your Exchange server in situations where a POP3/SMTP interface is not available (through a restrictive firewall, for example, or if your administrator simply does not provide a POP3 or SMTP gateway).
Caffeine is a free high-performance interoperability solution between the Java platform and the .NET framework, with special emphasis on the enterprise variants of such platforms. It makes software originally written for .NET available to the Java platform. It promotes library reuse between Java and .NET by transferring APIs across environments, and allows code written for one platform to run on the other platform with minimal performance degradation. It is powered by Mono, and runs on Alpha, Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, HPPA, SPARC, and s390 systems.
JCmdLineProgress is a Java library to assist with progress reporting on the command line. Using simple hooks, a program can send progress messages and status information to the command line. Also, text based "spinners" can be used to provide visual confirmation that a long running but quiet program is still running. A working example is provided.
