Piggydb is a flexible and scalable knowledge building platform that supports a heuristic or bottom-up approach to discover new concepts or ideas based on your input. You can begin with using it as a flexible outliner, diary or notebook, and as your database grows, Piggydb helps you to shape or elaborate your own knowledge. Piggydb is a Web application provided as a self-contained package that contains a Web server and database engine.
phpOpenTracker is a framework solution for the analysis of Web site traffic and visitor behaviour. It features a logging engine that, either invoked as a Web bug by an HTML image tag or embedded with two lines of code into your PHP application, logs each request to a Web site into a database. One installation can track an arbitrary number of Web sites. Through its API, you can easily access the gathered data and perform complex operations on it (for instance, the analysis of your visitors' click paths).
DOM Tooltip allows developers to add customized tooltips to Web pages. The tooltips are controlled through style class definitions and respond to events such as "mouseover", and avoids possible collisions with form elements such as select boxes and screen edges. While originally designed to create context tooltips, it is also possible to create a wide variety of dynamic layers, such as embedded windows, context menus, and hidden blocks. Additional features include sticky tips, tooltip fading, lifetime, relative positioning, class assignments, width adjustments, mouse dragging, captions, directionality, offset adjustments, adjustable activate/deactivate delay times, snapping to grid, fate adjustment (hide or destroy), and references to created tips. It supports Mozilla/Netscape6+, IE 5.5+, IE on Mac, Safari, Konqueror, and Opera 7.
Tapestry is a rich, component-based object model for developing dynamic, robust, highly interactive Web applications. Applications are constructed in terms of Java objects, methods and properties, instead of URLs and query parameters. It builds and interprets all URLs, dispatching directly to application-specific "listener" methods. It includes complete source code, documentation, tutorials and a complete example J2EE application.
WidgetServer is a Java/XML server-side GUI-framework which enables an application to run as either a monolithic Swing app, a client/server Swing app, or as a Web app without any change and without loss of functionality. An Eclipse Plugin is available as well. A rich widget set is supported that includes tree views, tabbed panes, split panels, and much more. Animations, all types of events, and several effects are supported, as well. A unified widget-based, object-oriented programming interface for Web and Swing GUIs is offered to the developer to control and assemble the GUI. Web applications are fully AJAX enabled. For Swing client/server applications, the framework handles client/server communication, including compression and security layers.
Spring is a lightweight Java/J2EE application framework based on code published in "Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development" by Rod Johnson. It includes powerful JavaBeans-based configuration management applying Inversion-of-Control principles, a generic abstraction layer for transaction management allowing for pluggable transaction managers, a JDBC abstraction layer, integration with Hibernate, JDO, Apache OJB, and iBATIS SQL Maps, AOP functionality, and a flexible MVC Web application framework with multiple view technologies. There is also a .NET port available.
Luxor is an open-source XML User Interface Language (XUL) toolkit in Java that lets you build UIs using XML and also includes an ultra light-weight, multi-threaded Web server, a portal engine, and a template engine. It is also Web Start-ready, as everything fits in a jar and requires no loose files.
BitNami WordPress Stack is an easy-to-install distribution of the WordPress blogging software. It includes pre-configured, ready-to-run versions of Apache, PHP, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin (optional), so users can get a WordPress installation up and running in minutes after answering a few questions. Linux, Windows, Solaris, and Mac OS X are supported.
Studs MVC Framework+ contains a port of Apache's Jakarta Struts to PHP, though the libraries included in the rest of the project are much more vast. In order to implement the Struts port, it was necessary to build a core, object-oriented API in the style of the JDK and the Jakarta Commons, a servlet container to handle HTTP requests and to invoke servlet classes, and finally, a parsing engine for JSP-style template pages. In the end, the result is an environment which is very similar to that provided by a J2EE Web Container, only everything is implemented in PHP. While it was possible to carry over many of the concepts, designs and mechanisms from J2EE, some limitations do exist due to the nature of the PHP programming language, such as the lack of checked exceptions (runtime only).
