Open Source software is great, so I chose to participate in some projects myself. On the following pages, you find more information about the projects that I support and have participated in.

Java Service Wrapper for 64-bit Windows

In my opinion, the Tanuki Java Service Wrapper is the best Java wrapper out there. Sadly, they do not provide the binary files for their Java Service Wrapper for Windows x64. But since the wrapper is released under the GPL, the source files are available, so I chose to regularly compile the wrapper binaries myself and provide them on my website.


OLTPBench is an extensible "batteries included" DBMS benchmarking testbed that is tailored for on-line transaction processing (OLTP) and Web-oriented workloads. I contributed multiple Oracle database related bugfixes and updates.

Cluster SQL*Plus (csqlplus)

Cluster SQL*Plus is a BASH script to query multiple Oracle databases in large environments. It functions as a wrapper for Oracle SQL*Plus to make working with multiple databases easier. It allows you to manage large environments and can be used to generate reports, automate queries over many databases or just to screw around on multiple databases at once.

Simons Oracle Installation scripts

Whenever I want to install a new database on a new server, I use these BASH scripts to automate most of the tasks involved. The scripts provide an easy way to install an Oracle database "hands-off".

GitHub repositories

For my studies in Computer Science, I like to keep my scripts and code in a repository. Since my notes and my code could also be of help for other students, I chose to make them publicly available on GitHub. Here some of the lectures (German):
