Adapro is a customizable multi-user word processor originally geared towards users with a learning disability or developmental disorder, such as dyslexia or autism. Hence its array of assistive features, including inline representation of words through pictograms, a virtual keypad with configurable phrase buttons, a dyslexia-friendly font, PBDQ, and high-contrast modes. The editing interface can be customized on a per-user basis, and documents produced with it can be exported to RTF for further editing in OpenOffice or other software. If Java 6 is on the system, it doesn't even require installation.
Alchitect helps you build Web sites and Web applications with unprecedented ease.

Anthill is a tool that ensures a controlled build process and promotes the sharing of knowledge within an organization. Anthill performs a checkout from the source repository of the latest version of a project before every build and tags the repository with a unique build number after every build. It supports many reposistory adapters including: CVS (Concurrent Versions System), Visual Source Safe, Perforce, PVCS, StarTeam, MKSIntegrity, and FileSystem. Anthill also automatically updates a project intranet site with artifacts from the latest build. Anthill is an extension to the Apache-Ant project and is compatible with version 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 of Ant.
The Extended Universal Resource Locator library provides a complete virtualization of file-like objects. How data is stored is completely transparent to the client, since the library is meant to replace java.io.File. It provides implementations for handling local files, Jar/Zip archives, and XML documents. (Implementations for CVS and FTP are available seperately.) Other storage providers can be written and plugged in. It also provides a merged filesystem implementation that allows multiple hierarchies to appear as one and to override each other in a controlled way. Other features include notification of changes to files, and support for attaching (dynamically updatable) actions to file objects.
The Fedora software is based on an architecture known as FEDORA (Flexible Extensible Digital Object and Repository Architecture). The software takes advantage of distributed (or local) Web services, and makes representations of objects (called disseminations) available via HTTP. It is particularly good at handling complex digital objects where source datastreams and behaviors are distributed. There are two binary distributions (server and client), and a source distribution (including all libraries and source code needed to build any distribution).
Showcase is a Mozilla Firefox plugin that allows tabs and windows to be managed by showing them as thumbnails in a single window, tab, or sidebar. It includes a find bar that will filter the thumbnails and the capability to select the thumbnails in the same way you would select files in your system.
ICEfaces is a framework for developing Ajax applications for the Web and iPhone in Java with JavaServer Faces. In contrast to typical Web applications, ICEfaces applications can update any part of the page at any time. Full page refresh is eliminated, and multi-user interaction is supported through AJAX Push.
The Java Conduit Manager is a Java application for installing and uninstalling Java conduits to the Palm Hotsync manager. Featured conduits are the XML Java conduits for the basic Palm pilot applications (addressbook, todolist, memopad, and datebook). These conduits perform a full mirror synchronisation between the handheld and the desktop, saving the information in XML files.
