Nexenta is a complete GNU-based operating system built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and runtime. The Debian system is used for software distribution and packaging to glue the numerous pieces together. However, Nexenta is not currently part of the Debian Project, nor are its packages present in the Debian database. It includes Apache, MySQL, Perl, Python, PHP, Firefox, Evolution, a software update manager, Synaptic package manager, Gaim, Abiword, administration and development utilities, editors, graphics, GNOME, interpreters, libraries, and much more.
AntInstaller is a flexible front end for deploying applications using Ant build files as the engine. It provides a Swing GUI and a command line alternative for situations (such as server deployment) when X is not available. The installer is designed by creating an XML config file that describes the various pages of the installer and the input required from the user. The input is validated and can be dates, directories, options selected from a list, or other structured input. Once the properties are selected, AntInstaller runs and calls the selected targets. Primarily, it is designed for installing Java apps in a user-friendly way, but can be used for anything that requires structured input for Ant scripts.
apt-got is a customizable mirror engine. It works like a highly specialized proxy. It employs several pluggable modules that are customized for specific jobs. The first available module builds and supervises a partial (or full) Debian mirror which is populated on-the-fly by apt-get requests. There is also a simple mirror module that can be used to mirror source directories or even (static) Web pages. For increased performance on already-cached files, it employes its own Apache module. It supports customized mirroring algorithms.
Webtester is an application which is intended to be used in the testing and validation of Web-based applications. By reading an XML configuration file, the application is able to call URLs and use regular expressions to examine the results. Features include support for SSL, cookies, and variable assignment/substitution when sending and examining data.
QueryForm is a Java GUI application that provides a powerful form-based front end for relational databases. It supports multiple concurrent connections to different databases. Tables can be queried through a simple form-based interface or a custom WHERE-clause editor. Query results can be browsed one row at a time through the the form interface or viewed in a scrollable grid, and can be exported to CSV files or INSERT statements. Table rows can be created, updated, or deleted, and table metadata can be viewed for each table in a database.
Babeldoc is a framework and set of applications to process documents for business-to-business and other Internet/integration applications. It is primarily intended for text documents, especially XML, but supports a wide range of operations and data types. It has a sophisticated journaling system that supports replaying and reprocessing. Babeldoc is pipeline based and supports numerous ways to combine the pipeline stages in a dynamically reconfigurable fashion. It has a GUI and a Web-based console for document processing and monitoring, and comes with tools for the tranformation of flatfile data to XML, archival, and cryptography. Additionally it is able to scan various data sources based on sophisticated constraints.
