Vamos project allows computers to run software directly from the network, without installations. The software is stored on servers and is centrally maintained without the user's effort or attention. The user just needs to run applications, and the necessary bits are streamed automatically to its computer. The execution of the software is local, allowing high responsiveness and distributed computational load.
JNC (JavaNativeCompiler) is a Java to native compiler. It allows ahead of time compilation of your Java applications. With JNC, you can create real standalone native binaries which will no longer depend on a JRE. This is especially useful when applications have to be deployed to end users. Native applications are easier to deploy since the end user doesn't need to worry about JRE dependency. They are also harder to decompile, and they load more quickly.
magicErmine is a tool for creating portable applications for Linux. It allows the same Linux executable to be run on a wide range of different distributions. Like statifier, It makes one executable file with no run-time dependencies from a dynamically linked executable and all of its libraries. Unlike statifier, it is able to add arbitrary files to the packed executable, such as configuration files or pixmaps.
fsrewrite is a utility for Solaris which allows non-privileged users to run programs in an environment where filesytem paths can be virtually remapped. Programs which read from or write to fixed paths can be transparently redirected elsewhere without the need to make any global changes.
