The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of a computer client or server to another server or reference time source, such as a radio or satellite receiver or modem. It provides client accuracies typically within a millisecond on LANs and up to a few tens of milliseconds on WANs relative to a primary server synchronized to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) via a Global Positioning Service (GPS) receiver, for example.

AntTask-GenerateXML is an Ant task that uses XMLBeans to create example XML instances from a W3C schema. It is especially useful for looking at pieces of schema, as you can set the element you wish to use as the root one. It will use the values from enumerations as the fixed/default values for attributes and elements if they are set. It obeys the XML type system with the exception of regex/patterns.
