Libbraille makes it easy to access Braille displays and terminals. It can write text on a Braille display, directly draw Braille dots, or get the value of pressed keys. It is compatible with a wide range of Braille displays, and can autodetect some of them. A virtual GTK+ display is provided so that developers can test how their application would be rendered in Braille.
FireStorm/DAO is a Java Code Generator that can import existing database schemas (from a SQL script or from a live JDBC connection) and can then generate a complete persistence tier. It generates Java source code and configuration files that developers would otherwise have to write by hand, and that is compliant with the Data Access Object (DAO) design pattern.
Isobel is a framework to build complex information retrieval and analysis systems. Isobel can be functionally divided in two subsytems, Isobel Gatherer (the crawling and filtering subsystem) and Isobel Analyzer (the analysis subsystem). The two subsytems can also be used separately. Isobel Gatherer offers ready-to-use services like content fetching, scheduling, document format conversion, Hyperlink graph storage and analysis, content storage and indexing. A programmer may easily add new services. Isobel Analyzer uses the IBM UIMA architecture to reuse the analysis components developed for this architecture.
ivata masks is a library of routines developed in Java/JSP/Struts that automatically create masks and lists based on Java reflection and settings specified in XML, which saves a huge amount of time. Rather than developing input screens and lists for each value object class, you need to define just two screens - one for lists, the other for input masks. An XML file defines which fields should be displayed or filtered out in each, and the library automatically interrogates the value object classes to discover which fields are available for display. Struts messages automate the field labels based on the field name as a key.
Jeff's Java Scanf Library is an implementation of the C-Runtime scanf, fscanf, and sscanf functions. The syntax of format strings is very similar (%*s, %3d, etc.) to that of the standard C implementation of scanf. Instead of taking wrapper objects, all scanf functions return an Object, whose types can be inferred from the format string.
Servertec Persistent Object Store (POS) is a high-performance cross-platform object oriented database engine written entirely in Java. With it, developers can easily create standalone database applications, including mobile and wireless devices and embedded systems. It can be used on any platform that supports Java version 1.1.x or later.
