By non-standard, I mean not part of the JDK.

Is there one place to browse through all available "open source" packages? Instead of writing my own stuff from scratch just to find out someone else has it coded already.

Of course I tried searching google, but didn't find anything.

Tarek,
I'm sure there isn't a place that lists all packages. Apache and SourceForge host a lot of the well known ones. And sites like java source list a lot of common ones by category.

I know there can't be an "ultimate" source, but I just thought there might be something similar to freshmeat, only for Java packages!

Anyhoo, the link you gave me looks great, and now it's bookmarked
