POCO C++ Libraries

The POCO C++ Libraries are a collection of class libraries for developing network-centric, portable applications in C++. The classes integrate perfectly with the C++ Standard Library and cover functionality like threads, thread synchronization, filesystem access, streams, shared libraries and class loading, sockets and network protocols (HTTP, FTP, SMTP, etc.), including an HTTP server, as well as an XML parser with SAX2 and DOM interfaces and SQL database access.
