nexB OpenAssets is a tool for inventorying, managing, and monitoring applications, software, hardware, networks, and generally any IT asset. It is designed so that system administrators, IT, and finance can determine what they have, how it is configured, what it is used for, and how much it is being used, so that informed decisions can be made. It complements existing network management software, integrates with a growing number of protocols and tools, and features no-agent discovery and inventory, configuration management including dependencies and correlation, monitoring, and reporting. It makes extensive and innovative use of XML, Xpath, and Xquery.
SportsTracker is an application for recording sporting activities. It is not bound to a specific kind of sport, as categories can be created for all sport types, such as cycling, running, or tennis. The main advantages are the good overview of your exercises and the easy creation of exercise statistics for specific time ranges and sport types. Users of heart rate monitors (Polar and CicloSport) can import, display (including diagrams), and organize the recorded exercise data.
The Maven-Grester plugin is a Maven2 plugin for Jester, the JUnit tester tool. It enables Jester to be executed at any valid Maven lifecycle phase in a Maven Project. It saves developers from constructing cumbersome Java classpath entries on the commandline every time they need Jester to run against JUnit Tests in the project. It can also help to dispense with a suite of scripts that may have been written to handle complex Java classpath executions for Maven projects.
Gnasher alleviates developers from having to execute maven builds with the "-o" option (offline) to avoid accessing external repositories' metadata files. The SHA1 hash files and the missing pom metadata files for dependencies are created if they are missing. The next time the build is run, external repositories are not accessed and the build runs faster.
CTL is a cross-platform control dispatching tool that makes it easy to automate any kind of distributed systems management or application provisioning task. Rather than writing complex and error-prone scripts that over utilize "for loops", CTL handles the network dispatching for you and allows you to focus on the actual management tasks you need to accomplish. In addition to being a dispatching tool, CTL comes with pre-built cross-platform utilities so you don't have to script actions like file distribution or process and port checking. You can also write your own custom utilities and share them with others in your organization. Custom utilities are defined in XML, and your scripting can be done in multiple scripting languages (Perl, Python, etc.), *nix shell, Windows batch, and/or Ant.
CRET is a code review tool for reviewing and committing patches to a Subversion repository. It hooks into SVN's commit procedure and only performs the commit if the patch file has an "approved" status. When somebody wants to commit a patch file to an SVN repository, the patch file must first be added to CRET. The person committing must the select reviewers and enter an objective and title for the patch. This operation notifies the reviewers through email. A reviewer can add comments to a patch, approve it, or reject it. Comments are sent to the requestor via email. If a patch is approved, the requestor can commit the code. When the code is committed, email is sent to the requestor and reviewers for notification.
MuleSoft Tcat Server is enterprise Tomcat made simple: a fully supported Tomcat server that allows developers to easily build and test today’s connected Web applications, and that simplifies Tomcat management and application provisioning tasks for administrators. Tcat Server has an easy graphical installer and headless installer for Linux (multi-distro: RHEL, Debian, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, openSUSE, etc), Windows, Solaris 10, and Solaris 11. Tcat also offers reliable JVM restarts, server group deployments, a REST API for scripting the console in any language, a groovy shell built into the console, and JMX alerting and monitoring features.
iBeans aims to make integration for Web applications much easier than it is today. It does this by focusing on simplicity and task-based integration and avoids technical jargon and new concepts wherever possible. It offers easy to use integration for doing things like publishing and subscribing to JMS queues and topics, sending and receiving email, polling resources such as databases and ATOM feeds, task scheduling, creating HTTP/Rest services, consuming external services such as Amazon EC2 and S3, Twitter, Flickr, Google, and much more. It proves a Tomcat distribution that drops straight into Tomcat, with no need to mess with your project dependencies, and works with developer tooling for Tomcat or Tcat. It has a very simple API using annotations. This means iBeans can be plugged into your existing Web apps easily. It includes easy unit and mock testing using JUnit. IBeans Central offers a great place to discover and try new iBeans in your applications.
