OpenProj is a project scheduling/management tool similar to GanttProject. It is also open-source and is written in Java. There is a gantt chart, there is a network chart, there are a few resource-related charts. It is developed by Projity, which is probably better known by their online service Project-on-Demand.

My personal feeling after playing with OpenProj a little is that the application is quite raw and unstable so far. There are obvious annoying bugs and quite a lot of usability problems. Goog luck for them, though! If they manage to overcome the problems, the community will be given one more nice project management application.

A few more improvements in exporting and printing

GanttProject 2.0.5 news:

CSV export now understands custom fields and keeps correct order of tasks. Memory consumption of Print Preview has been decreased approximately twice. It is still possible that big projects will not fit into available memory if printed with big zoom level, but in this case an error message will be shown.
