OpenEJB is a simple, lightweight Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) container and server. You can embed OpenEJB in your own applications, or in a Web application server like Tomcat, or run it as a standalone EJB server. It supports EJB 3.0, 2.1, 2.0, and 1.1, and has partial support for EJB 3.1.
fastutil extends the Java Collections Framework by providing type-specific maps, sets, lists, and queues for Java with a small memory footprint and fast access and insertion. It also provides big (64-bit) arrays, sets and lists, and fast, practical I/O classes for binary and text files.
Apache Cayenne is a persistence framework that provides object-relational mapping (ORM) and remoting services. It has a wealth of unique and powerful features and can address a wide range of persistence needs. Cayenne seamlessly binds one or more database schemas directly to Java objects, managing atomic commit and rollbacks, SQL generation, joins, sequences, and more. With Cayenne's Remote Object Persistence, those Java objects can even be persisted out to clients via Web Services. With native XML serialization, objects can be even further persisted to non-Java clients.
Luxor is an open-source XML User Interface Language (XUL) toolkit in Java that lets you build UIs using XML and also includes an ultra light-weight, multi-threaded Web server, a portal engine, and a template engine. It is also Web Start-ready, as everything fits in a jar and requires no loose files.
DataVision is a reporting tool similar to Crystal Reports. Reports can be designed using a drag-and-drop GUI or a text editor. They may be run, viewed, and printed from the application or exported as HTML, XML, PDF, Excel, LaTeX2e, DocBook, or tab- or comma-delimited text files. The output files produced by LaTeX2e and DocBook can in turn be used to produce PDF, text, HTML, PostScript, and more. It can generate reports from JDBC databases or text data files. Report descriptions are stored as XML files.
Rachel is a resource loading toolkit for Java Web Start/JNLP. Rachel offers two solutions that make resource loading for Java Web Start/JNLP apps easy again. Solution 1 installs a URL handler for a new protocol called class:// that delivers content from jars identified by a Java class. Solution 2 embeds a multi-threaded ultra-lightweight Web server in your app that serves up content from jars in the Java Web Start application cache. Rachel also works without Java Web Start, although this might be pointless. Examples and user documentation are provided.
The Apache Open For Business Project is an enterprise automation software project that includes ERP, CRM, E-Business/E-Commerce, SCM, MRP, and CMMS/EAM functions. It is a foundation and starting point for enterprise solutions and can certainly be used out of the box, but is also great for creating specialized applications.
