sessiond allows a cluster of SSL/TLS servers to share their session caches in order to prevent each node of the cluster from negotiating a separate session. SSL/TLS session is basically a set of secret values (symmetric encryption keys, MAC secrets) shared between a client and a server. The use of asymmetric cryptography required to establish new sessions is the main performance bottleneck of the SSL/TLS protocol.
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.
Livespaces is an operating system for building advanced meeting spaces. It provides a distributed software infrastructure built on the Elvin messaging service (the Livespace Bus) for coordinating software and devices across any number of computers in a meeting space, and user-facing applications for controlling a smart meeting room and collaborating with other participants. It also supports federation with remote Livespaces to facilitate collaboration between distributed teams.
Palm-Strip-Export is a utility to export your legacy PalmOS Strip databases to simple CSV files. Once your databases are exported you can print them, open them in Excel, or import them into a separate program. Most importantly, these export files will be directly importable to the iPhone when the desktop sync tool is released. This exporter only works with Palm Strip 2.0 databases.
MammothCopy is a simple, Java-based tool to copy large or many files from one computer on the Internet directly to another. This is also possible with tools like WinSCP and an SSH server, but those are too complex for normal users. MammothCopy is geared towards parents wanting to send photos to their kids, or professionals who want to transfer huge files (only limited to the receiving end’s hard disk space).
