Orinoco - A Java API to generate PDF documents
There are many Java PDF generators available - why bother with another one? The motivation arose when trying to use a commercially available PDF generator to deliver adhoc reports through a browser. The PDF generator offered everything: charts, drawings, images etc., but all that was required was merely to lay out some text in a tabular format with a few headings in bold. The tool we were using could certainly do this, but when generating larger reports (around 70 pages) it was taking so long to generate the PDF that the HTTP request timed out and the users ended up with nothing.

Careware - A Small Idea

I never saw a wild thing
Sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead
From a bough
Without ever having felt sorry for itself.

JettyPlus
The purpose of this project is to enrich Jetty by selectively incorporating useful J2EE and non-J2EE features. The result is JettyPlus, an environment offering additional facilities to core web and servlet services, but which does not entail a full-blown application server (such as JettyJBoss and JettyJOnAS).

The feature set currently contains:

* Java Transaction API (JTA) and Resource references, eg DataSources
* Java Naming and Directory Interface API (JNDI)
* Log4J
* Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS)

Sourceforge RSS
SourceForge.net provides a number of RSS feeds, allowing easy access to various site and project data. RSS feeds are accessed using an RSS reader or aggregator, which allow you to subscribe to exactly the information you wish to read. Through the use of RSS feeds, you are better able to keep up-to-date on project and SourceForge.net site developments, and save time in the process.
