UPNPLib is a Java library for the UPNP protocol. It features an easy programming interface for developers as well as an HTTP-based console for end users or developers, so that they can control the UPNP devices residing on their network. It implements all UPNP features like discovery and eventing. The library also provides integration with JMX management (by exposing UPNP devices as MBeans) and RMI through transparent NAT/firewall traversal.
AntInstaller is a flexible front end for deploying applications using Ant build files as the engine. It provides a Swing GUI and a command line alternative for situations (such as server deployment) when X is not available. The installer is designed by creating an XML config file that describes the various pages of the installer and the input required from the user. The input is validated and can be dates, directories, options selected from a list, or other structured input. Once the properties are selected, AntInstaller runs and calls the selected targets. Primarily, it is designed for installing Java apps in a user-friendly way, but can be used for anything that requires structured input for Ant scripts.
AntFlow builds upon Apache Ant to provide a new approach to simplifying system automation that uses pipelines of hot folders chained together to perform a given task. Using XML, it associates an automated task such as data transfer, encryption, or XML processing with a directory on the local system. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing.
Groovy is an agile, dynamic language for the JVM which combines many features from languages like Python, Ruby, and Smalltalk and makes them available to Java developers using a Java-like syntax. It is designed to help get things done on the Java platform in a quicker, more concise, and fun way. It can be used as an alternative compiler to javac to generate standard Java bytecode to be used by any Java project or it can be used dynamically as an alternative language, such as for scripting Java objects, templating, or writing unit test cases.
mod_vhs is an Apache 2.2+ Web server module allowing mass virtual hosting without the need for file-based configuration. The virtual host paths are translated from any database supported by mod_ldap or mod_dbd at request time from MySQL, LDAP, PAM, or a system password file. PHP security can be basically auto-configured from the database using this module. Requests are cached by mod_ldap when configured.
XSTest is an object framework that takes unit and functional tests created in JUnit, Jython, MaxQ, and TestMaker and runs them as load tests to understand the scalability of a Web- enabled application. Unit tests test an individual module for correct functionality by making requests to the host and recording the success or failure and timing metrics of the response. XSTest takes unit tests and runs them multiple times concurrently to learn the scalability of the Web-enabled application as load increases.
