Rachel is a resource loading toolkit for Java Web Start/JNLP. Rachel offers two solutions that make resource loading for Java Web Start/JNLP apps easy again. Solution 1 installs a URL handler for a new protocol called class:// that delivers content from jars identified by a Java class. Solution 2 embeds a multi-threaded ultra-lightweight Web server in your app that serves up content from jars in the Java Web Start application cache. Rachel also works without Java Web Start, although this might be pointless. Examples and user documentation are provided.
Luxor is an open-source XML User Interface Language (XUL) toolkit in Java that lets you build UIs using XML and also includes an ultra light-weight, multi-threaded Web server, a portal engine, and a template engine. It is also Web Start-ready, as everything fits in a jar and requires no loose files.
Apollo is an open-source developer test skeleton toolkit for Java Web Start/JNLP. It lets you turbo-charge Web Start apps without Web Start to speed up your compile/run/test/debug/goof-off cycle, avoiding the hassle of stuffing, signing, uploading, or downloading your jars every time you rearrange a comma in your source code.
Salsa is a collection of Swing add-ons. It includes new widgets such as auto-complete textboxes or tree tables, new data models such as XML tree models, UI tree models, or Java Bean table models, new common dialogs such as a font chooser, new convenience methods such as center frame on screen, and much more.
Cypress is an open-source Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) parser that lets you add well-documented, standardized name/value pairs (a.k.a. CSS style properties) to your own XML markup languages. It supports inline styles so you can add style properties to individual XML tags using the style attribute or external style sheets so that you can store style rules for reuse in separate, XML-free text documents. Cypress supports three forms of selectors to match your XML tags and style rules, that is, element selectors, class selectors, and id selectors.
Caramel is a collection of open-source Java utility classes and includes class utility methods, color utility methods and constants that let you use more than a hundred predefined colors by name (such as azure, chocolate, deepskyblue, indigo, etc.), data utility methods to get a timestamp in a RFC-1123 format, file utility methods to get file extensions or to save a stream to a file, MIME utility methods, net utility methods, string utility methods to fill in templates, and much more.
