The Pegasus Workflow Management System encompasses a set of technologies which help workflow-based applications execute in a number of different environments, including desktops, campus clusters, grids, and clouds. It bridges the scientific domain and the execution environment by automatically mapping high-level workflow descriptions onto distributed resources. It automatically locates the necessary input data and computational resources necessary for workflow execution. It enables scientists to construct workflows in abstract terms without worrying about the details of the underlying execution environment or the particulars of the low-level specifications required by the middleware (Condor, Globus, or Amazon EC2). It bridges the current cyberinfrastructure by effectively coordinating multiple distributed resources.
jMonkeyEngine is a game engine made for developers who want to create 3D games following modern technology standards. The framework is programmed entirely in Java, and aimed at wide accessibility and fast deployment to desktop, Web, and mobile platforms. It is not a visual “RPG Maker” or a drag-and-drop “FPS mod”. If you are comfortable writing Java code, you can rely on jMonkeyEngine as your next 3D game’s foundation.
Business Refinery Java Barcode Generator Suite is a Java library and Jar that makes it easy to create linear 2D barcodes in Java applcations such as JSP, J2EE, Servlet, Web services, Java beans, J2SE, or Jasper Report, iReport, BIRT, and Oracle Report. Multiple barcode types are supported, including QR Code, PDF-417, Code 39, Code 128, EAN/UPC, Interleaved 2 of 5, and so on. Users can easily adjust barcode settings like width, height, resolution, orientation, image format, etc.
Gerrit is a Web-based code review system, facilitating online code reviews for projects using the Git version control system. Gerrit makes reviews easier by showing changes in a side-by-side display and allowing inline comments to be added by any reviewer. Gerrit simplifies Git-based project maintainership by permitting any authorized user to submit changes to the master Git repository, rather than requiring all approved changes to be merged by hand by the project maintainer. This functionality enables a more centralized usage of Git.
ApplPi is a stochastic noise machine that creates a soothing background noise for those who can't work in complete silence or need to mask distracting noise. It creates sound similar to any noise machine, but it's more musical and harmonic. Additionally, you can control the frequency (note) of the sound and choose from built-in presets of noise/sound.
Status Reporter is a time tracking application that was designed to track the time spent working on various activities associated with work breakdown structure (WBS) line items. Each activity is associated with a WBS line item, and a WBS line item is part of the overall departmental budget. Even though it was developed for a specific purpose, the ideas can be applied to almost any situation. For example, if you do not use WBS numbers, you could just create a single WBS number and associate all activities with it. Alternatively if you have multiple projects, you can use the WBS numbers as individual projects and have one or more activities associated with each. The WBS number does not have to be numeric, so it is flexible in its usage.
