JXTA technology is a set of open protocols that allow any connected device on the network ranging from cell phones and wireless PDAs to PCs and servers to communicate and collaborate in a P2P manner. JXTA peers create a virtual network where any peer can interact with other peers and resources directly even when some of the peers and resources are behind firewalls and NATs or are on different network transports. The project goals are interoperability across different peer-to-peer systems and communities, platform independence, multiple/diverse languages, systems, and networks, and ubiquity: every device with a digital heartbeat.
JaxMe is a Java/XML binding framework based on SAX2. It consists of a set of code generators that read an XML schema and generate code for parsing conformant XML documents into corresponding Java objects, saving those objects into a database or, vice versa, reading such Java objects from a database and converting them into XML. JaxMe supports namespaces, relational databases, and Tamino. JaxMe comes with an integrated application framework and a generator for EJB entity beans with BMP (bean managed persistence).
auth_ldap is an LDAP authentication module for the Apache Web server. Auth_ldap has excellent performance, due to its use of aggressive client-side caching algorithms. It also has support for LDAP over SS or TLSL. It also features a mode that lets Microsoft Frontpage clients manage their Web permissions while still using LDAP for authentication.
mod_backhand is a load balancing module for Apache. It provides per-request HTTP redirection within a heterogeneous Apache server cluster. Each request is processed and run through a set of "candidacy functions" to determine which server is best suited to respond. The request is then proxied to that server. Facilities are in place to allow you to write your own dynamically loadable decision making algorithms. Everything about the request and the current availability of resources can be used in the decision-making process.
The Bright Side Framework provides ready-to-use, high-level J2EE components which will help you quickly build business J2EE applications accessed by rich Java/Swing clients on HTTP. The components are loosely coupled, which allows you to pick only the one you need. The Remoting transparently encapsulates EJB calls inside HTTP. The List Of Values provides nice features for the reference data of all business applications. The Smart Value Object tracks the client modifications and manages the optimistic concurrency during client/server communication. The Remote Iterator allows a rich client to fetch the results of a SQL statement, block by block.
State is a suite of tools for monitoring a network of machines. You tell State how your network looks and should behave, and State warns you when things start to deviate from that rhythm. Many different aspects of a network can be monitored, from disk space and load average to machine connectivity and service availability.
