XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
Release Notes: This release enables receiving compressed data by default. It has better support for SSL connections. Messages will appear in the logs if the server is outdated. A new performance chapter has been added to the documentation, which is now up-to-date on the website.
The YB.ORM library aims to simplify writing C++ code that has to deal with SQL databases. The goal is to provide a convenient interface like SQLAlchemy (Python) or Hibernate (Java). The library itself is cross-platform and supports a variety of SQL dialects: SQLite3, MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, and Firebird. Integration with Boost, Qt4, and wxWidgets is built-in. In a typical usage scenario, you would describe your database schema and table relationships in a simple XML-based format, generate SQL code to populate database schema with tables, generate C++ classes, add application-specific logic to the classes, and use these classes in cooperation with the Session object to query objects from the database, create new or modify/delete existing objects, or link and unlink objects using relations. Simple serialization to XML is supported along with connection pooling.
Release Notes: This is mostly a refactoring and bugfixing release. It adds Tutorial 4 (tree structure stored in a table), adds fixes to build under Mac OS X, refactors the Engine class hierarchy, fills FK values on linking of two objects if possible, extends logging for delete_object() operation, makes DDL statements generated from Schema iterable, renames several classes and files to follow the common style and to better reflect their contents, and adds many fixes to library logic and interfaces.
AWS Dashboard is a simple dashboard for Amazon Web Services. It features a list of available availability zones in each region, availability zone statuses per region, instance counts per region, instance counts which turns red if events are scheduled, a list of events by instance ID, EBS volume counts per region, EBS volume counts which turn red if any EBS volumes are unattached, the ability to delete unattached EBS volumes, elastic IP counts per region, elastic IP counts which turn red if any elastic IPs are unattached, the ability to delete unattached elastic IPs, and elastic load balancer counts per region.
Release Notes: This is the initial release.
