Users of heart rate monitors (Polar and CicloSport) can import, display (including diagrams), and organize the recorded exercise data.
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.
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.
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.
