JCmdLineProgress is a Java library to assist with progress reporting on the command line. Using simple hooks, a program can send progress messages and status information to the command line. Also, text based "spinners" can be used to provide visual confirmation that a long running but quiet program is still running. A working example is provided.
RoboBrain SDK is a simple, lightweight 2D game engine for Android phones and tablets. It supports OpenGL ES 1.0 Rendering, a custom GameActivity class, a World/Entity system, basic physics and collision detection, animated and static sprites, and support for Multitouch and accelerometer input.
Playtomic is a set of client and server APIs for game leaderboards, user generated content, and dynamic updates. It began as a hosted service providing tools and analytics for game developers, but is now available for developers to operate on their own. It includes the API server which is written in NodeJS and backed with MongoDB, along with game client APIs for HTML5, Flash, iOS, Android, Windows, and Unity3d games.
AstroStack is an easy-to-use astronomical imaging and processing tool geared towards the use of inexpensive webcam CCDs. It provides a very tunable environment to produce the best quality images. It supports the following features: tunable webcam sampling; image stacking (averaging, additive etc.); pre and post-capture gamma (brightness) and contrast correction; dark-shot CCD calibration (subtractive); and an internal 16-bit grey-scale format for optimal resolution.
MorseCodr is a program for practising Morse code communication. You can connect to other users and send Morse signals that are automatically interpreted by the program. Once you become more proficient, you can reduce the amount of display and interpretation provided. It features Morse code tape display, dot/dash colouring, letter interpretation, and adjustable speed.
XMLFoundation provides a foundation for XML support in an application. However, it is more than just another XML parser. It applies a unique approach to handling XML that allows your application code to focus on the application rather than traversing DOM or subscribing to SAX events. The most unique feature of the XMLFoundation is the object oriented encapsulation that provides XML support in the application layer. XMLFoundation allows you to easily integrate XML with your GUI or with your server objects, and it natively supports COM, DCOM, and CORBA objects.
Launch4j is a cross-platform tool for wrapping Java applications distributed as jars in Windows native executables. The executable can be configured to search for a certain JRE version or use a bundled one, and it's possible to set runtime options, like the initial/max heap size. The wrapper also provides better user experience through an application icon, a native pre-JRE splash screen, a custom process name, and a Java download page in case the appropriate JRE cannot be found. The increase in size of the application is small.
MapServer is a CGI based Web mapping application development tool. It processes user defined configuration files and templates to allow for a wide variety of applications to be developed, including interactive mapping, and spatial query definition and processing. It supports several data formats. Key features include scale dependent map rendering, automatic scalebar and legend building, feature labeling with collision avoidance, logical and thematic classifications, and on-the-fly projection of raster and vector data. The application can also access other WMS servers as a cascading map server.
