Solr is an enterprise search platform from the Apache Lucene project. Its major features include powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, dynamic clustering, database integration, and rich document (e.g. Word and PDF) handling. Solr is highly scalable, providing distributed search and index replication, and it powers the search and navigation features of many of the world's largest internet sites. Solr is written in Java and runs as a standalone full-text search server within a servlet container such as Tomcat. Solr uses the Lucene Java search library at its core for full-text indexing and search, and has REST-like HTTP/XML and JSON APIs that make it easy to use from virtually any programming language. Solr's powerful external configuration allows it to be tailored to almost any type of application without Java coding, and it has an extensive plugin architecture when more advanced customization is required.
While the author of BSAX-J has not yet come to a final conclusion about the need for a binary XML format, BSAX is his idea of one possible encoding that leverages other XML prior art (SAX events and UTF-8, in particular). It is complete in that it can be used to perform round-trip conversions from textual XML to SAX events to BSAX binary streams, and back to SAX events and textual XML. The test code in the distribution does exactly that for a simple example XML file, and measures the difference in file size (the file is slightly smaller for the BSAX encoding of the sample file) and the difference in read time (the read time is significantly faster for the sample file).
Clipboard Modifier is a flexible system to modify the text in a clipboard in a variety of ways. It can copy a spreadsheet and change the clipboard so that it can be pasted into a wiki, with vertical bars (|) instead of tabs. It can modify multi-line clipboard text so that it can be pasted into Java or Python as strings. An URL in the clipboard pointing to Amazon can be modified so that it has your Associate ID in it. It can pipe the clipboard to a shell command and retrieve the output from it. A clibpboard can be forced to text, removing things like formatting. A complicated URL can be converted into its Python equivalent, using urlencode.
CollabNet Connector Framework is an Openadaptor-based SDK that allows rapid integrations and migrations dealing with the artifact data shared between different tools in the ALM cycle in combination with the collaborative platforms from CollabNet. It features bidirectional, out-of-the-box tracker integration between HP Quality Center, CollabNet SourceForge Enterprise, CollabNet Enterprise Edition, database tables, and CSV files.
Cypress is an open-source Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) parser that lets you add well-documented, standardized name/value pairs (a.k.a. CSS style properties) to your own XML markup languages. It supports inline styles so you can add style properties to individual XML tags using the style attribute or external style sheets so that you can store style rules for reuse in separate, XML-free text documents. Cypress supports three forms of selectors to match your XML tags and style rules, that is, element selectors, class selectors, and id selectors.
