Lava's jDES is a highly optimized, highly configurable implementation of the Data Encryption Standard (DES) in Java. jDES was designed with four goals in mind: accuracy, speed, ease of use, and configurability. jDES utilizes Sharkysoft's proprietary reformulation of DES optimized for 32-bit machines. jDES was initially released as an integrated feature of Lava, a general-purpose class library for Java. By popular demand, it is now distributed in its own bundle.
Lava's jWave is a versatile set of packages for Java that allow you to easily create and process RIFF files, with a special emphasis on reading and writing Microsoft PCM .wav files. jWave was initially released as an integrated feature of Lava, a general-purpose class library for Java.

Lava is a class library for Java. Its packages evolved from several programmers' need for features in Java that were not available in the standard Java library. Although Lava includes several GUI-related classes, its main emphasis is in batch-oriented data processing and reporting applications. Thus, there is a heavy emphasis on stream parsing, data manipulation, and text formatting.
Printf for Java is a pure Java implementation of the famous printf data formatting function. It supports precompiled format strings for faster processing and an object-oriented data model for maximum flexibility. Printf for Java has helped hundreds of programmers port legacy C applications to Java.
