Through the use of the java.lang.reflect package, JMirror provides the ability to load an arbitrary class given the class name, to display all class information such as constructors, methods, data members, and to call arbitrary methods or constructors of a class and store their return values. It is possible to create new Widgets and utilize them much like an application builder (such as NetBeans), and also to store return values of methods and constructors to be later used as "this" or parameters for method/constructor calls.
UIML stands for User Interface Markup Language. It is an XML-family language for user interface description. The basic idea is to build user interfaces for various platforms from one description (source). The description consists of a widget structure definition, widget properties, reaction on events, widget set description, application logic, etc. The project aim is to build a Python renderer for UIML. It supports static rendering and wxPython. See additional info on UIML at www.UIML.org
Makefiles is a high-level build system and suite of portability tools. It is meant to be easier to use than autoconf and generally superior. The package contains a set of rules that allows you to compile structured projects with small and uniformly structured makefiles. All rules are located in a central directory. Compiling the projects on different platforms can be done simultaneously without having to modify any of the makefiles that are located in the projects directories.
Myke is a replacement for make written several years ago. It's an almost complete superset with a very few syntactic and semantic differences. So if you like it, moving your Makefiles to Mykefiles is very easy. Its primary difference is that the macro syntax is richer, permitting extremely succinct Mykefiles.
TkSQL allows you to edit the tables of PostgreSQL and MySQL databases. You can use it from the shell prompt, specifying the name of a table, or an SQL satement, or just the name of a database. It has filter capabilities which are very easy to use. Two views are possible (tables and form) and both views can coexist. TkSQL can edit a join of two tables (limited to the first of such tables). Totals and subtotals can be done quickly, and displayed inline with the data or in a separate window. Queries can be created in no time and all working conditions can be saved at once (comprising subtotals, relative time constraints, layout, etc.). It also provides basic tools for creating tables.
java_syn.pl is a syntax highlighter for Java that converts a package of multiple .java files to multiple .html files. Class names are converted to links, so the reader can click on a class name to immediately see its source code. Default highlighting colors are the same as in Textpad.
smake is a highly portable 'make' program that makes commands up to date based on rules in Makefiles and on the timestamps of the related files. It implements a complete superset of the features of the classical POSIX/Unix make program. It warns about typical misuse of dynamic macros that prevent portability of makefiles. Its automake features allow you to run scripts to automatically create rules for unknown platforms.
