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.
AntFlow builds upon Apache Ant to provide a new approach to simplifying system automation that uses pipelines of hot folders chained together to perform a given task. Using XML, it associates an automated task such as data transfer, encryption, or XML processing with a directory on the local system. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing.
Just4Log is a library to dynamically enhance the performance of various Java logging systems inside a Java application. The source code in Java is not modified, but the optimization occurs on the compiled bytecode files. It optimizes bytecode from Log4j, Apache Commons, and JDK 1.4 java.util.logging. It can also automatically add "enter" and "exit" logs at every exit and entry point of methods. An Ant task offers integration in Ant scripts.
Anteater is a testing framework designed around Ant, from the Apache Jakarta Project. It provides an easy way to write tests for checking the functionality of a Web application or of an XML Web service. It can test either HTTP requests or replies in various sophisticated ways. The ability to wait for incoming HTTP messages is unique to Anteater, which makes it especially useful when building tests for applications that use high level SOAP-based communication and asynchronous SOAP messages. Anteater provides XML and text logging support and the ability to render the logs into HTML reports.
MaXPI is a Plug-in for Jakarta Turbine Maven that adds some goals to help Mozilla Application Developers handle daily development tasks more easily. They can create ready-to-code Mozilla Application Directory Layouts based on a POM configuration and easily build Mozilla applications as source and install packages.
JSPTemplates is a template engine that allows developers to write JSP pages that are very similar to the Sun API. The output of the pages does not have to be sent over the Web, and can be saved to a file or streamed in any other way. Any Java can be embedded in a JSP page, making the engine much more flexible than other template engines, and precludes the requirment to learn new syntax. It can also be used as a more flexible alternative to xslt for dynamically generating XML.
CrazyBeans provides an API to read, analyze, modify, and create Rational Rose models. The aim of the project is to allow users to influence the process by which Rational Rose converts class diagrams into code and vice versa.It is designed to be convenient, flexible, and extensible. CrazyBeans also makes it possible to convert Rational Rose's proprietary file format into alternative formats.
