Japex is a simple yet powerful tool to write Java-based micro-benchmarks. It is similar in spirit to JUnit in that if factors out most of the repetitive programming logic that is necessary to write in micro-benchmarks.

Here is a simple tool for finding which jar file holds a Java class.
I just had a frustrating hour or so with Subversion. No, it's not that I have problems with its functionality (well, I actually do, but today isn't time to talk about that.) It's the lack of craftsmanship that bothers me.
It was magic-like: the JavaOne technical session today by Pat Patterson, Vidhya Narayanan, and Malla Simhachalam on how to develop and secure Web services in federated environments.
Check out the demos at the Sun Java Studio Creator booth in the pavilion at JavaOne.
