FireAnt is an Eclipse plugin for modeling complex remote deployment and configuration processes for EJBs. It allows developers to model the deployment and execution of groups of packages and configuration scripts on remote targets. After modeling a deployment plan, FireAnt's runtime infrastructure SSHs into each target, copies over the specified files, deploys the EJBs and Webapps, runs any required deployment scripts, and then cleans the staging environment.

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.
