jo! is a pure Java Web server that implements the Servlet API, JSP, and HTTP/1.1. It features advanced thread management, virtual hosts, memory-sensitive file cache, authentication using a role abstraction, automatic compressed transfer of text or HTML files, auto internationalization, auto servlet and JSP reloading, auto reload of WARs, hot deployment of WARs, JSR-45 support, and an easy-to-use Swing console.
GCViewer is a Swing-based application that visualizes the verbose garbage collection output generated by the IBM, Sun, HP and BEA Java VMs (-verbose:gc/-Xloggc:-flags). The data can also be exported as CSV for forther processing with a spreadsheet application. Visualizing the data can help when one is tuning the garbage collector, especially the generation sizes and initial heap size.
beaTunes is an iTunes companion app capable of automatically analyzing your music collection to help you build better playlists. It analyzes BPM (beats per minute), silence at the beginning or end of a song, and the color (based on frequency spectrum) of a given song. Some of the data is stored through iTunes, and some is stored by beaTunes itself. beaTunes can suggest albums that would complement your music collection, display music charts, and help you find and fix errors in your song meta data, like typos and wrong genres. It also allows you to blog about selected songs or playlists.
Jipes is a Java library that allows you to efficiently compute audio features. Possible uses for these features are general music information retrieval (MIR) applications or, more specifically, personal music software. Unlike many other digital signal processing (DSP) libraries or frameworks, Jipes is not meant for real time processing of a single audio stream that is manipulated and eventually played back. Instead, it focuses on efficiently executing mutiple processing pipelines that transform a signal into a feature or feature set. Since Jipes focuses on features instead of the raw, untyped signal streams, it supports rich types to be used, where other frameworks only offer arrays of raw data. Also, by using Java generics, many core interfaces and classes can be typed to whatever class you see fit for the purpose. However, Jipes also comes with useful pre-defined types and support for raw arrays.
CASampledSP is a JNI-based service provider for the javax.sound.sampled.spi interfaces. As such it is capable of decoding many popular audio formats (like mp3 and aac) at native speed taking advantage of Apple's CoreAudio library. The focus is currently on decoding and converting to LPCM, not on writing or exporting.
FFSampledSP is a free implementation of the javax.sound.sampled.spi interfaces. It is part of the SampledSP collection of javax.sound.sampled libraries. Its main purpose is to decode audio from various formats at high speed using FFmpeg. To do so, it uses the tagtraum FFmpeg package, which offers FFmpeg binaries configured to decode audio while avoiding CODECs with patent problems. In other words, it supports formats like Ogg and FLAC well, while leaving MPEG-4 and MP3 unsupported.
