Oddjob is a Java job scheduler and task automation framework. A GUI designer or XML are used to define a hierarchy of jobs. Sequential, parallel, and conditional execution (or combinations) allow for nearly any business process to be modelled. Oddjob can run on the desktop or on a server and uses JMX to control remote instances via an Explorer-style GUI. Basic Web-based monitoring is also available. It can be embedded in client code and is easily extensible via a simple API.
METSlib is an object-oriented metaheuristics framework in C++ designed to make implementing or adapting models easy. The model is modular: all the implemented search algorithms can be applied to the same model. METSlib implements the basics of some metaheuristics algorithms, such as Random Restart Local Search, Variable Neighborhood Search, Iterated Local Search, Simulated Annealing, and Tabu Search. For each algorithm, you must implement an objective function, a neighborhood (move manager), and some moves. Tabu Search is one of the fastest ways to generate near-optimal solutions to a wide range of hard combinatorial optimization problems.
The Procrastinator's Timeclock is a simple utility for people who suffer from excessive procrastination or distractibility. The utility achieves its benefits by allowing you to comfortably track just how much time your little "one more thing"s are adding up to and by helping to bolster willpower by providing a gentle distraction from temptations. Its design focuses on simplicity, intuitiveness, and a preference for keeping existing users rather than attracting new ones.
SCHED_DEADLINE is an implementation of a new scheduling class for the Linux kernel. It implements the real-time scheduling algorithm called Earliest Deadline First (EDF). A key feature is that it ensures "temporal isolation", which means that the temporal behavior of each task (i.e., its ability to meet its deadlines) is not affected by the behavior of any other task in the system. In other words, even if a task misbehaves, it is not able to exploit larger execution times than the amount it has been allocated. Each task is characterized by a "budget" and a "period" equal to its deadline. At any instant of time, the system schedules the task having earliest deadline.
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.
Nevede is a Web application to schedule events easily. When you start planning an event with Nevede, each participant can to go to the event's Web page to express availability. The event's page will then show the time slots that are compatible with the schedules of all the participants. Events can be made public or private. Comments can be posted in meeting pages.
