The mission of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) project is to create and maintain software libraries that provide a predictable and consistent interface to underlying platform- specific implementations. The primary goal is to provide an API to which software developers may code and be assured of predictable if not identical behaviour regardless of the platform on which their software is built, relieving them of the need to code special-case conditions to work around or take advantage of platform-specific deficiencies or features.
Catacomb is a WebDAV repository module for use with the Apache WebDAV module, mod_dav. Apache mod_dav parses WebDAV and DeltaV protocol requests into operations on a repository providing persistent storage of resources and their properties. The default repository for mod_dav is provided by a separate module, mod_dav_fs, which stores resource bodies as files in the filesystem, and stores properties in a (G)DBM database. It could be used for server side searching and versioning of files over the HTTP protocol.
Conary is a distributed software management system for Linux distributions. It replaces traditional package management solutions (such as RPM and dpkg) with one designed to enable loose collaboration across the Internet. It enables sets of distributed and loosely connected repositories to define the components which are installed on a Linux system. Rather than having a full distribution come from a single vendor, it allows administrators and developers to branch a distribution, keeping the pieces which fit their environment while grabbing components from other repositories across the Internet.
The Enterprise Sign On Engine (ESOE) allows an enterprise to meet its goals for identity management, single sign on, authorization, federation, and accountability for resource access in a very extensible manner. The ESOE is built using the OASIS SAML 2.0 specification, and the ESOE's powerful authorization engine is built around a reduced version of the OASIS XACML 2.0 standard called Lightweight eXtensible Authorization Control Markup Language or "LXACML".
Flickcurl is a C library for calling the Flickr Web service API. It handles the API signing, token management, and parameter encoding and decoding, resulting in C functions for the Web services APIs. It uses libcurl to call the REST Web service, and libxml2 to manipulate the XML responses. The library supports reading photo, tag, and comments information, the photo upload and searching APIs, and writing tags and comments. It provides utilities such as "flickcurl" to exercise the API and "flickrdf" to get RDF metadata descriptions out of photos, tags, and machine tags.
GridWay is a workload manager that performs job execution management and resource brokering on a grid consisting of distinct computing platforms managed by Globus services. It enables large- scale, reliable, and efficient sharing of computing resources managed by different Local Resource Management systems within a single organization (enterprise grid) or scattered across several administrative domains (partner or supply-chain grid).
JCons provides a library that bring color to your Java console. The Java console gives no methods to change the foreground or background color. With help of this library, one can make error messages red and success messages green, for example. Most Unix terminals can deal with ESC sequences, so they are used to make the Java console colorful.
LibMySequoia provides an alternative library for MySQL C client library (libmysqlclient.so) to benefit from the Sequoia high availability and performance scalability clustering solution. Native MySQL client programs can use the Sequoia clustering solution without changing any line of code in the application. The benefit of this solution is that native C applications, PHP, Perl, and Python programs using the MySQL C API interface now can transparently connect to a Sequoia cluster.
Mod_Dosblock is an Apache module written to provide Dos/DDoS protection at the HTTP layer. It works on HTTP URLs or HTTP headers, and can throttle requests based on the incoming URI/header pattern. This module can be particularly useful in an architecture where the content serving Web servers sit behind reverse proxy Apache servers exposed to the Internet. The gateway servers can throttle/DoS protect HTTP queries, saving the actual serving Web servers.
