DashO is a Java application obfuscator, optimizer, and packager. It performs a dependency analysis on the application, removing unused methods and fields. Classes and members can be renamed using the patented Overload-induction renaming algorithm. Byte code optimization, control flow obfuscation, and string encryption can also be selectively applied. Special features include analytics for Java/Android/RIM/J2ME including exception reporting, Android obfuscation and tamper protection, and JAR watermarking.
VAInstall is a multi-platform installer written in Java. Through a simple config file, it allows the packager to pick files and directories from various places on disk, and not only one root dir like other installers. The packager can completely reorganize the files and dirs on the destination host. He can choose the install mode for the destination host (graphic, xtra, text, or ANSI). VAInstall takes minimum space on the destination host; it does not write any large temporary files on disk, and supports easy and powerful uninstallation.
Multicast BOOTP Java server and C/Linux client's goal is to implement the BOOTP/DHCP protocol through multicast rather than broadcast. Sun's Java networking API offers multicast socket communication objects, allowing you to create a platform independent IP interface configuration utility. Eventually, such utilities may become a fully featured multicast DHCP server. Any ideas on how to support existing BOOTP broadcast client requests are welcome. See the Multicast HOWTO at http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Multicast- HOWTO.html.
Packlet is a simple installer tool for Java. A packlet is similar to a zip or tgz file: it packages an application into a single compressed file that can be distributed. Packlet files are class files that can be executed on any machine with Java 2 installed. Executing a packlet brings up an installer GUI to configure and unpack the application.
jSyncManager is a Java-based data synchronization toolkit for PalmOS handhelds. It consists of a developers API, including a fully Palm-compatible synchronization protocol stack, and a set of end-user applications. It is ideal for use by any individual or organization that needs fast, stable, and easily extendable PalmOS handheld data synchronization that can run on a variety of platforms. It also supports plug-ins, which can be used to add synchronization support to applications, and includes a variety of import and export modes, including XML and CSV.
The Hunting of the Snark Project contains a client for downloading and sharing files distributed with the BitTorrent protocol. It is mainly used for exploring the BitTorrent protocol and experimenting with the GNU Compiler for Java (gcj), but it can also be used as a regular BitTorrent client. Snark can also act as a torrent creator, a tiny HTTP server for delivering metainfo.torrent files, and has an integrated tracker for making the sharing of files as easy as possible. When you use the --share option, Snark will automatically create a .torrent file and start a very simple Web server to distribute the metainfo.torrent file and a local tracker that other BitTorrent clients can connect to.
