AGENCY is software that allows non-profit organizations to track data and manage operations. It is a fork and continuation of CHASERS. AGENCY aims to become a collectively-maintained and developed project that puts organizations in charge of their data systems. There are currently two “flavors” of AGENCY: one for managing clients and services, case management, and such (think “social service”); and one for managing donations and volunteers (think “fundraising”). Features include a report generator, permissions and access control, the ability to merge reports to OpenOffice documents, a log system, and real-time alerts with email notification. In the client version, many tables and data structures are already set up for organizations doing human service, homeless services, or HMIS. The donor version is set up to track donors, addresses, gifts (cash and inkind), flags, volunteers, volunteer activities, and more.
Java distributed framework is a framework for distributed grid and / or volunteer computing. It's divided into a server and client library. You can create new or implement it into existing applications in no time; you don't need knowledge about network connections, sockets, etc. The Framework does almost everything automatically. It provides secure automatic client <-> server communications, unique IDs, automatic resending of jobs to new clients if needed, user stats, and much more. The client framework supports the detection of the computer's user state (idling, away, online, etc.). It also offers many other useful features and helpers for developing a distributed client application.
