The Platonos Projects are a group of sub projects aimed to provide Java developers with a stand-alone plugin engine as well as a pluggable Swing application framework similar to other RCP (Rich Client Platforms) available. The goal is to have an out-of-the-box runnable Swing application with the more common pieces applications contain, such as preferences, help, file I/O choosers, configuration, and more all via plugins which can be left out if not needed. Building upon the shell is very easy by simply adding plugins that provide extended behavior for existing plugins, or adding new plugins that will then be extended by other plugins.
Free Image Manipulator (FIM) allows you to manipulate a whole set of images at once easily. You can resize all images from the set to the same size and convert between the most popular file types like PNG, JPEG, and GIF. You can also add text or logos to the images with a specified background and opacity level and color.
Mergence is a high-performance HL7 integration engine and application platform based on Apache ServiceMix. It was developed to fill the need for an open source, fully transactional health care integration system capable of handling millions of messages per day and thousands of concurrent LLP connections. Message transformation and scripting is done using Groovy.
NUTSS (NAT, URIs, Tunnels, SIP, and STUNT) is a network architecture that combines data-decoupled signaling and data-coupled signaling to establish Internet flows. The goal is to enable intermediary systems like firewalls and NATs, which can intercept the signals, to discover the intent of a network connection. The intermediaries can then facilitate the connection setup or enforce other policies.
Grid Wrapper for WebSphere Information Integrator allows applications that currently access DB2 (or any other RDBMS) to transparently access a fully distributed database over a grid with a minimum of changes. This is most useful when it is difficult to modify an application so that it natively uses a grid-enabled API.
