    metagloss is an open source library I've been working for reducing the amount of tedious and repetitive boilerplate code. It is heavily annotation-based, accomplishing setter injection from XML and database sources, but also offers classes (and annotations) for automatic updating and controlling of preference views.

    There hasn't been any official releases yet, though checking out the project directly into eclipse works. The API is designed for ease of use - it is supposed to make a programmer's life easier, not harder. The API documentation is rather extensive, albeit not complete.

    The code was leveraged from the more refined parts of my previous app (BOINC Echo - sf project page), though it hasn't yet been tested in other projects or faced the scrutiny of fellow developers. I'd be delighted over whatever feedback I can get. I'm hoping this would help me in identifying some bugs and/or needed features that escaped my sensibilities.
