Ada Util is a collection of utility packages for Ada 2005. Several packages are inspired from Java packages and libraries (Java properties, log4j, listeners, streams). The library provides a logging framework, a serialization/deserialization framework for XML, JSON, CSV, an Ada beans framework, a composition stream framework (raw, files, buffers, pipes, sockets), several concurrency tools (reference counters, counters, pools, fifos, arrays), a REST client framework, and more.
Osgish is a command line shell for OSGi. It is based on the Readline Library, Jmx4Perl, as the OSGi backend, and Aries JMX as the OSGi Management layer. It is different than other OSGi shells, as it is implemented in pure Perl and provides unique features like wildcard support, context-sensitive command line completion, syntax highlighting, bulk lifecycle operations, advanced query facilities, and remoting via HTTP. It uses jmx4perl and Aries JMX OSGi bundles for accessing the OSGi container remotely.
Azzyzt JEE Tools is a set of Eclipse plugins for creating a so-called "azzyzted" project, and for creating code from a model. Azzyzt uses Java JPA entities as a model, and from that model it creates an enterprise application, ready to be deployed in a Java EE 6 application server like GlassFish 3.1, ready to be accessed via CORBA, SOAP, and REST. Thus the generated application is a set of Web services, providing all that you need in a typical CRUD application. Generated enterprise applications have separate source folders for generated and developer-supplied content. You can add your own functionality to a well-engineered base project. Azzyzt JEE Tools is not about user interfaces. It is expected that the generated application is accessed by a RIA frontend or by a fat client.
iBeans aims to make integration for Web applications much easier than it is today. It does this by focusing on simplicity and task-based integration and avoids technical jargon and new concepts wherever possible. It offers easy to use integration for doing things like publishing and subscribing to JMS queues and topics, sending and receiving email, polling resources such as databases and ATOM feeds, task scheduling, creating HTTP/Rest services, consuming external services such as Amazon EC2 and S3, Twitter, Flickr, Google, and much more. It proves a Tomcat distribution that drops straight into Tomcat, with no need to mess with your project dependencies, and works with developer tooling for Tomcat or Tcat. It has a very simple API using annotations. This means iBeans can be plugged into your existing Web apps easily. It includes easy unit and mock testing using JUnit. IBeans Central offers a great place to discover and try new iBeans in your applications.
CRest (Client REST) is a lightweight library that simplifies the integration of third party RESTful services into Java applications. CRest is mainly annotation-driven, allowing the developer to focus on the essential aspects of the integration of a REST service, such as the definition of the Java interface that maps the remote REST methods and the data model the interface will deal with. The rest is achieved by annotating a plain Java interface with the relevant information such as the service end-point, the desired timeouts, URL formats, etc. CRest will handle everything else, including HTTP request generation, auto marshalling of the response, and more.
