Apache Rat improves accuracy and efficiency when reviewing and auditing releases.
Apache Rat improves accuracy and efficiency when reviewing and auditing releases. It is heuristic in nature: making guesses about possible problems. It will produce false positives and cannot find every possible issue with a release. It's reports require interpretation. Apache Rat was developed in response to a need felt in the Apache Incubator to be able to review releases for the most common faults less labour intensively. It is therefore highly tuned to the Apache style of releases.

Client-side HTTP implementation in Java.
Commons HttpClient is a library for client-side HTTP communication. It provides support for HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/1.0, plus various authentication schemes and cookie policies. Thanks to it's widespread use and years of development, it is a very mature and stable codebase. However, due to limitations in the API design, Commons HttpClient will eventually be replaced by HttpClient 4.0 with a completely redesigned API based on HttpCore.
