PARASOL is a C library for writing simulations of computer systems. It supports a simulated, user- configured, multiprocessor environment on which user-written software (in C or C++) is executed. The modeling paradigm is "execution based," permitting detailed models of software, including cooperating processes. Note that although it supports simulated networks of computers, PARASOL executes as a single process on a single machine.
jRSVP is a Java 1.4 tool for Rapid Serial Visual Presentation, a technique for extremely fast reading. It uses the Multivalent library for parsing input documents, and is able to read PDF, PS, HTML, man pages, and other documents.

Sval is a Web service which charts the closing price of a stock listed on the American Bourses versus the closing values of the DJIA, NASDAQ, and S&P500 over a given period of time. The chart is returned to the user as a SOAP message attachment in PNG, JPEG, or SVG format. This project is a testbed for investigating a wide variety of Web service technologies by implementing the same Sval Web service using different architectures.
