TurnKey Tomcat Appliance is a server appliance for Tomcat, a servlet container that implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications and provides a "pure Java" HTTP Web server environment for Java code to run in. It is designed to be easy to use and easy to maintain. Security patches are automatically installed. It provides a Web management interface, configuration console, and an AJAX Web shell. To minimize footprint the appliance is built from the ground up with the minimum required components. It runs everywhere thanks to multiple build formats, including an installable live CD, a VMDK with OVF support, and an Amazon EC2 AMI.
Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.
Bonka's Queue is an HTTP-based message queue that relates to JMS or AMQP much in the same way that CouchDB relates to traditional DBMSes. That is to say that it tries to solve a different (much simpler) problem and avoid all the extra overhead associated with more "proper" solutions.
AVS is a source configuration management software that embedds a bug tracking feature. It is based on a common file "check-out / check-in" procedure, which eases early conflict detection. A file can have parallel versions. A proprietary 3-way merge tool is bundled to help merging. AVS uses a development task concept, which allows grouping checked-out files for the same purpose. Users can then work on several tasks at once without confusing files. Each development task is natively linked to a change request, which can be linked to several tasks. The build manager then relies on a change request selection within a set, while still being able to unselect some tasks if needed. A user management feature, with groups and access rights, is provided to restrict access to users upon their profile.
GWiki is an embeddable Wiki engine. It allows users to edit rich text fragments in an application you develop. It supports I18N files and mulitimedia content. Gwiki can be extended with macros written in Java or Groovy. It has a powerful right and role system, which can be fed from external sources such as LDAP, and allows access to business entitiels from wiki pages. It comes with Wicket integration out-of-the-box. Wicket-HTML-Fragments can be held within GWiki, so these pages can be managed by the Wiki System, while Wicket handles the application logic. GWiki can be deployed as a servlet on every servlet container. GWiki can use a filesystem, a Zip archive, or a database for its content storage.
jminix is a simple embeddable restful JMX console. It is useful for when you don't want to use an external full-blown JMX console, but just want to have a simple JMX entry point into your new or existing apps. Embedding JMiniX in a Web app is done simply by declaring a servlet. Deployed as a servlet, it benefits from your Web application configuration such as filters or security constraints.
