FísicaLab is an educational application to solve physics problems. The problems are set up by adding elements from the palette to a chalkboard and entering the data for each element. The elements are objects such as blocks, pulleys, motors, and forces. It can use the SI and English unit systems, scientific notation, and many conversion factors. The types of problems that can be solved are kinematics of particles (including circular motion), static analysis of particles and rigid bodies in 2D, dynamic analysis of particles in 2D (excluding the dynamics of circular motion), heat, calorimetry, ideal gas, and expansion. The static and dynamic problems are entered by constructing the free body diagrams of the objects.
UMLet is a lightweight tool for rapidly drawing UML diagrams, with a sound and pop-up-free user interface. UMLet lets you draw diagram sketches quickly, teach UML with a simple user interface, and export diagrams to SVG, JPG, PDF, and LaTeX-friendly EPS.

tinyMAS is a multiagent platform that provides base concepts (such as kernel, message, yellow pages, white pages, and transport service) and extended concepts (such as environment, influence, and perception). It aims to provide an easy-to-understand and and easy-to-use platform dedicated for multiagent engineer/research courses. TinyMAS is no longer under development.

JGloss is an application for adding reading and translation annotations to words in a Japanese text document. This can be done automatically and manually. When a text document is first opened, kanji words will be looked up in a dictionary and the first reading and translation (if any) used to annotate the word. The user can then edit the annotations: choose among the readings and translations found in the dictionaries, enter your own readings and translations, remove annotations, and add new annotations. The document can be exported as plain text with annotations, HTML, or LaTeX.
