The par utility creates and manipulates PalmOS database (.pdb) and resource (.prc) files. Par is designed to be a Swiss army knife for managing these files. It's a command line tool, and not for the faint of heart, but it's very handy and replaces a bunch of little utilities that you might otherwise use.
NTXShape is a GIS data conversion tool that translates CARIS NTX interchange files into the ESRI shapefile format. It converts points, lines, polygons, text, spot heights, and soundings, preserving virtually all of the information found in the source data. It includes a command-line interface and a static library.
The NetBeans Filesystems Library provides The NetBeans Lookup Library as a standalone library that can be used independent of the NetBeans IDE or Platform. The lookup library provides a simple, powerful solution for two problems common to modular applications: Allowing new components to register objects that need to be visible to other elements of the system, and pseudo-multiple inheritance (allowing objects to change the functionality they offer dynamically by changing the contents of their lookup). It is available as a binary download, and JavaDoc is available. NetBeans uses Lookup internally to allow plugin modules to install new objects such as compilers that need to be found by the common infrastructure that supports them. However, the library can be useful in almost any situation in which loose coupling is desirable. It includes an AbstractLookup class and a number of other implementations of the Lookup interface that make it very easy to quickly get started.
The Carbon Framework is a set of core functionality and a model for building lightweight technical services in Java. It is designed for enterprise solutions where robust components with flexible management and consistent configuration are required. The foundation of Carbon is an XML-based configuration service that supports a namespace of strongly-typed and editable configuration data. Technical components like cache services or schedulers can be deployed and managed through Carbon's configuration service and are easily replaced. The management capabilities are provided though JMX, facilitating the maintenance and monitoring of services.
