I noticed this on DZone, and it is not in my permanent bookmarks for later play. There is a lot of gold here.

30 Open Source projects in 50 minutes. (From JavaOne 2008)

Sounds interesting, but creating an account on some web site just to download a file is too much to ask of me.

You can't browse the presentation from the web page?

Huh. Using Safari, I can. In Firefox, the area with the embedded Flash player is just missing, with no indication that something is missing. Weird.

Most of the libraries I already knew, since I keep pretty close tabs on the open source Java world. Looking at the code samples I'll take another (or deeper) look at
  • Scriptella (I'd have used straight JDBC for this, but this looks much simpler, especially since it can be driven from Ant)
  • XStream (looks simpler than Apache Commons Digester)
  • and CGLIB (looks simple to use, although possibly dead?; I've been using Javassist for creating Java classes dynamically)
  • .
    Thanks for posting this, Dave.

    XStream is gold. Of them all, I use this the most, and it is also the easiest way to create non-essential serialisation for Objects. ie dump to screen to interrogate the values.

    Of the ones I haven't used, I am keen to play with:

    ApachDS
    ASM/CGLIB
    EHCache (we use OSCache a fair bit)
    jDBI
    Commons Primitives
