JCGO (pronounced as "j-c-go") translates (converts) programs written in Java into platform-independent C code that can be compiled (by third-party tools) into highly-optimized native code for the target platform. JCGO is a powerful solution that enables your desktop, server-side, embedded, mobile, and wireless Java applications to take full advantage of the underlying hardware. In addition, JCGO makes your programs, when compiled to native code, as hard to reverse engineer as if they were written in C/C++. The JCGO translator uses some optimization algorithms that allow, together with optimizations performed by a C compiler, the resulting executable code to reach better performance compared with the traditional Java implementations (based on the Just-In-Time technology). The produced executable does not contain nor require a Java Virtual Machine to execute, so its resource requirements are smaller than that required by a typical Java VM. This also simplifies the process of deployment and distribution of an application.
Upmf is a source-based package manager written almost completely in Scheme. The user is able to search, build, and remove packages. Since Scheme through GUILE is very extensible, the user can customize the procedures, or even exchange them with his own, if wanted. Packages are stored in their own self-contained directories and are incorporated into the filesystem with help of GNU Stow.
Metrix++ is a platform to collect and analyze code metrics. It has a plugin-based architecture, so it is easy to add support for new languages, define new metrics, and/or create new pre- and post-processing tools. Every metric has 'turn-on' and other configuration options. There are no predefined thresholds for metrics or rules; you can choose and configure any limit you want. It scales well to large codebases. For example, initial parsing of about 10000 files takes 2-3 minutes on an average PC, and only 10-20 seconds for iterative re-run. Reporting summary results and exceeded limits takes less than 1 - 10 seconds. It can compare results for 2 code snapshots (collections) and differentiate added regions (classes, functions, etc.), modified regions, and unchanged regions. As a result, easy deployment is guaranteed into legacy software, helping you to deal with legacy code efficiently, and either enforce the 'leave it not worse than it was before' rule or motivate re-factoring.
