JExpress is a Java installer builder and auto-updater. It gives you your choice of a standalone installer, including both native and cross platform installers and updaters for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Solaris, or a Java Web Start one-click install. You create your installer quickly with your choice of a simple wizard or a powerful advanced interface, both included. You can bundle the exact JVM you want with your installer. The auto-updater gives you a continuous revenue stream after the sale. Your software is always up-to-date, so your customers have fewer problems. You also get all the features you expect in a top end installer. Your Java application becomes a native program just like any other. On Windows it's an EXE, on Mac OS X an app bundle, etc. If you need something really special, you can customize your installer by adding simple Java classes. You can even get a source license at a reasonable price.
Makefiles is a high-level build system and suite of portability tools. It is meant to be easier to use than autoconf and generally superior. The package contains a set of rules that allows you to compile structured projects with small and uniformly structured makefiles. All rules are located in a central directory. Compiling the projects on different platforms can be done simultaneously without having to modify any of the makefiles that are located in the projects directories.
smake is a highly portable 'make' program that makes commands up to date based on rules in Makefiles and on the timestamps of the related files. It implements a complete superset of the features of the classical POSIX/Unix make program. It warns about typical misuse of dynamic macros that prevent portability of makefiles. Its automake features allow you to run scripts to automatically create rules for unknown platforms.
layout is a tcl package that allows you to create layouts simply and efficently. The layout you want is "written" in a variable that is parsed by proc "layout", which will arrange for normal managers (grid and pack) to handle it. Since the variable can be dynamically created, the layout can be created on the fly. The format of the variable is intuitive so that reading the code is easy, and change in the layout can be done in seconds. Comes with a detailed demo.
Kelly is a JBuilder 4 & 5 plugin that makes it easy to deploy EJBs to JOnAS 2.x. Kelly can be installed and run with other JBuilder 4 & 5 plugins such as BEA WebLogicServer 5.1, BEA WLS 6, IBM WebSphere 3.5, Borland AS 4.5, etc. Kelly provides services to Jbuilder 4 & 5 java developers such as the ability to create any XML deployment files required by JOnAS 2.x, hot loading and unloading of any EJBs to JOnAS (only for JBuilder 5), control of JOnAS start-up from JBuilder 4 & 5, and the supply of JOnAS word dictionaries to JBuilder 4 & 5 in order to enhance the JBuilder 4 & 5 text completion services.
ATG Dynamo integration for JBuilder is a JBuilder 5 plugin that makes it easy to deploy J2EE applications to the ATG Dynamo Application Server version 5.1 (DAS). It can be installed and run with the other JBuilder 5 plugins such as BEA WebLogicServer 5.1, BEA WLS 6, IBM WebSphere 3.5, Borland AS 4.5, etc.
PHAkt is an open-source PHP extension for Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, allowing PHP generation using the same techniques as when developing ASP/JSP/CF. PHAkt has a lot of improvements over the original PHP_MySQL server model of Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, including support for multiple databases in a transparent way, support for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MsSQL date locales, user authentication server behaviors, master/detail server behaviors, go to detail page server behaviors, improved code generation, and multiple and extensible recordset support. IIS and Apache 2 are supported by using absolute redirects.
The Helix Ribosome build system is a set of programs written in the Python programming language which provide a common interface to retrieving and building programs from source code stored in a CVS repository. The build system is made up of two basic subsystems. The first ("build") calculates the dependencies of a target, retrieves the source code, and runs commands to build that source code in the correct order. The second component ("Umake") is a cross-platform Makefile generator, which generates makefiles that work with MSVC, CodeWarrior, and typical Unix toolchains. Umake can be used independently from the build program.
