mod_pLua is an Apache HTTP Server 2.x module for developing Web applications with Lua. With mod_pLua, you can use Lua for scripting in two distinct ways; Embedded Lua scripting, <?lua print("Hello, world!") ?>, or plain Lua scripting with a CGI-style interface. mod_pLua precompiles all scripts and caches the compiled binary code so that each new call to the same file will be lightning fast, allowing you to serve hundreds of thousands of requests per minute on any modern server. Mod_pLua supports both the traditional Lua interpreter as well as LuaJIT for both Windows and UNIX platforms. If your Web server supports it, mod_pLua also utilizes APR_DBD and mod_dbd to handle persistent database connections through the dbopen() Lua function.
cmocka is a unit testing framework for C with mock objects. There are a variety of C unit testing frameworks available supporting different platforms and compilers. Some development requires a lot of different compilers and older versions, which makes it difficult to use unit testing frameworks. The idea of CMocka is that a test application only requires the standard C library and CMocka itself to minimize the conflicts with standard C library headers, especially on a lot of different platforms.
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.
