This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I have been using DBVisualizer from Minq software. It is a Java DB management tool. I realize it is not an open source tool but it is free and very good. I thought it was worth mentioning. http://www.minq.se/products/dbvis/index.html
I would like to add CVS For NT as a replacement to Sourcesafe and PVCS. The default model calls for allowing multiple checkouts but there are commands (admin -l and edit -c ) which let you use it in a fashion similar to VSS and PVCS. I am also using PostGres along with cygwin (a Unix emulator for windows) as a robust and scalabe database for small and medium non critical apps. For a nice source editor I cannot live without I would recomend Crimson Editor (free not open source).
Thanks for all your inputs. We've got a wonderful list. I hope the game will go on. I like Python, so JPython should be added. If Nick would suggest one, I guess he might mention aspectJ. Nick, how do you view the future of AOP? Is AOP a design technique or a new programming paradigm? Could you pls talk something about your recent research on aspectJ? Thanks.

doug , as far as aop is considred , the guru Grady Booch himself says it as " Disruptive Technology on Horizon. " it is not programming technique. it is improvement over oo technology . rather you can say technology which can solve the problems which oops can not solve. so , to use it you first need the solid foundation in oo technology. then , only you can realize the problems oo technology can not solve. if you read the papers from the developers of this technology ( XEROX PARC ) , probably that will give you more insight. i hope this helps.

yes. me. I like it very much. It is easy to use, but you must read the first tutorial in the help perspective. I really hate to read tutorials about computer programs, but this one was really fast. Then you have a for me very usefull Java ide. Give it a try!!! It is the basis for IBM WebSphere Application Designer (comercial). Problem: at the moment no gui builder available. But 3.rd parties can build modules. And will do so. As IBM. Its not that clumpsy as forte. Axel [ March 14, 2002: Message edited by: Axel Janssen ]
struts and ant! struts and ant! struts and ant! the world is a better place for these 2 Also a plug for mySQL-Front - since i'm not all that databasey it quickens up my development time no end! Any opensource project that gets me away from the screen and outside (...to the pub, usually) is good and the 3 above do that

Hi everyone, Wow, this posting is really cool. I also hope this list to grow. I'll definitely try some of those. Anyway, argoUML is my pick: http://argouml.tigris.org/ I have not contributed anything, but I really want to in near future. This app is a lifesaver. Oh, I haven't tried yet, but I hear good things about Enhydra: http://www.enhydra.org/ Enhydra sounds like a thing between Servlet and EJB. I hope I can have some fun with it in near future. Not an open source, but some free stuff: EJBGen: http://beust.com/ejbgen/ By implementing document based keyword, this tool generates Home/Remote interfaces and dd for WebLogic. Java2HTML: http://www.vaegar.f9.co.uk/java2html.html very easy to use souce-to-html converter. It prints out frame-based HTML files for display.
Bias aside, ALL of the Jakarta projects. I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned Log4j specifically. Some other ones you might to check out as well: Cactus - JUnit extension for server-side testing Commons - has the very useful Digester class Lucene - search engine Junilu [ March 14, 2002: Message edited by: Junilu Lacar ]
