dao-zero is a tiny Java bean used to reduce the source of a persistence tier based on Spring's iBatis support. The usual way to use iBatis in Spring is to write code and invoke the iBatis API explicitly. dao-zero invokes the iBatis API for the developer automatically, without the need to write implementation code. It will implement DAO interfaces automatically and invoke iBatis SQL mapped statements for you. You can use it to replace your DAO bean class directly.
cintoo Messages is a framework to make internationalization easier for Java applications. It supports locales for threads, and bundles can be associated with different packages. This allows the usage of different bundles for different parts of the application, such as plugins, an installer, or a logging system. Bundles can be managed and associated with packages without any changes in the code. This makes bundle management and refactoring much easier than with other solutions. cintoo Messages supports global locales for client applications written in Swing or SWT and thread-local ones for serverside Web applications.
Creating a digital library requires converting the original scanned images into various formats. WolfpackSys is a software system that performs these large data conversion tasks in a distributed manner. The framework allows the best off-the-shelf conversion programs to be used in an automated system, and it runs the conversions in parallel on a large number of machines. It is currently used to perform image cropping, de-skewing, de-speckling, and OCR, as well as to create JPEG and Acrobat files from scanned images.
