The Extended Universal Resource Locator library provides a complete virtualization of file-like objects. How data is stored is completely transparent to the client, since the library is meant to replace java.io.File. It provides implementations for handling local files, Jar/Zip archives, and XML documents. (Implementations for CVS and FTP are available seperately.) Other storage providers can be written and plugged in. It also provides a merged filesystem implementation that allows multiple hierarchies to appear as one and to override each other in a controlled way. Other features include notification of changes to files, and support for attaching (dynamically updatable) actions to file objects.
CryptEngine is a fast 3D engine for Java. It is based on OpenGL and provides components and objects allowing the description and rendering of 3D scenes. Unlike several other 3D engines, it focuses on rapid application development and makes it possible to create and render complex 3D scenes without having to learn OpenGL. A large collection of demos are included, demonstrating the many features and providing you with valuable design techniques and tricks. It also facilitates game design with a sound system, scripting, and networking.
The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one Internet application suite. It contains an Internet browser, email and newsgroup client with an included Web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat, and Web development tools, and is sure to appeal to advanced users, Web developers, and corporate users. It uses much of the Mozilla source code powering such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird, and Miro.
ICEfaces is a framework for developing Ajax applications for the Web and iPhone in Java with JavaServer Faces. In contrast to typical Web applications, ICEfaces applications can update any part of the page at any time. Full page refresh is eliminated, and multi-user interaction is supported through AJAX Push.
Pike is an interpreted, object-oriented, dynamic programming language with a syntax similar to C. It includes a powerful modules system that, for instance, has image manipulation, database connectivity and advanced cryptography. It is simple to learn, does not require long compilation passes and has powerful built-in data types allowing simple and fast data manipulation.
Adapro is a customizable multi-user word processor originally geared towards users with a learning disability or developmental disorder, such as dyslexia or autism. Hence its array of assistive features, including inline representation of words through pictograms, a virtual keypad with configurable phrase buttons, a dyslexia-friendly font, PBDQ, and high-contrast modes. The editing interface can be customized on a per-user basis, and documents produced with it can be exported to RTF for further editing in OpenOffice or other software. If Java 6 is on the system, it doesn't even require installation.
Zimbra is a next-generation enterprise messaging and collaboration system. It features an Ajax Web client with conversation views, fast email search, Web service mash-ups, shared calendars, document authoring, and IM. The server also syncs to MS Outlook (via MAPI), the Apple desktop (via iSync, iCal, and CalDAV), POP/IMAP clients, and mobile devices (BlackBerry, smart phones, HTML Web browsers). A version of the Web client, Zimbra Desktop, also works offline with any POP/IMAP server. Administrators can control live backup/restores of individual or groups of mailboxes, hierarchical storage (HSM) and clustering, LDAP directory configuration, Web services integration with existing enterprise applications, and integrated anti-spam and anti-virus.
