section covers several open source contributions posted by some
of our team members. Some of them have grown out of our work, others
have been developed just for fun. Our aim is to help improving the
installed base of open source software by sharing knowledge. With
others following the same example we gain part of their knowledge
thereby helping us to improve our applications and vice versa. Please
note, that the following packages are provided as is and may be
downloaded at no charge. In case of questions, please contact the

has contributed patches to the RMI module of the GCC project. These
improve protocol compatibility between
Sun Java and

addition he has developed a little tool to trace RMI messages exchanged

When working with Linux, you might have discovered the annoyance
of being unable to unmount certain resources such as the CD-ROM.

contributions by Christian Dombacher
From the collection of Definity tools, AVAYA did never provide, Christian
decided to release the Clear Vector Script Generator for public free
usage. This tiny Windows command line application generates Terranova
/ ATE scripts, which allow you to clear a predefined set of vectors.
Program, documentation and sample file may be downloaded
Years ago Christian developed a lot of software tools for the little
Commodore 64. Most were published in the well known 64er or MD/GO
magazines. Some remained unpublished up today. One such utility is
S3COMP, as cross packer for Intel based PC platforms. It allows to
compress CBM programs within seconds. S3COMP is less than 2K in size
and may be downloaded
here. The program
is accompanied by the original article with some comments (in German).
