Spinneret is a structured storage engine that can be thought of as an extended tuple storage system. It takes the best aspects of relational, object, and hierarchical databases and throws away the dead weight associated with those technologies. The benefit of Spinneret is that its data model is incredibly flexible, allowing it to expose its underlying data in any number of ways. It operates similar to an object database, but without hard ties to an originating language, and can also behave like a relational database without the burden of complex joins.
The Chameleon Problem Solving Environment is based on the CPACS data format and allows third party application coupling for multidisciplinary simulation. It comprises a set of libraries and integration components for the commercial integration environment ModelCenter or the open source alternative RCE (http://www.rcenvironment.de/). It was initially developed from the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
TIXI is a fast and simple XML interface library for applications written in C, C++, Fortran, Java, and Python. Although simplified and somewhat restricted compared to a fully-fledged XML processing library, it can create documents, create and delete nodes, and add and remove element attributes. Routines for reading and writing text nodes and nodes holding integer and floating point numbers are included, along with routines that process aggregates of these simple types for the processing of geometric data, multidimensional arrays, or arrays of vectors.
The TIGL Geometry Library can be used for easy processing of geometric data stored inside CPACS data sets. TIGL offers query functions for the geometry structure. These functions can be used, for example, to detect how many segments are attached to a certain segment, which indices these segments have, or how many wings and fuselages the current airplane configuration contains. This functionality is necessary because TIGL targets not only the modeling of simple wings or fuselages but also the description of quite complicated structures with branches or flaps. The library uses the OpenCASCADE software to represent the airplane geometry by B-spline surfaces in order to compute surface points and also to export the geometry in the IGES/VTK format. The library provides external interfaces for C, C++, Python, Java, and FORTRAN.
Agnos is a cross-language, cross-platform, lightweight RPC framework with support for passing objects by value or by reference. Agnos is meant to allow programs written in different languages to easily interoperate, by providing the needed bindings (glue-code) and hiding all the details from the programmer. The project essentially serves the same purpose as existing technologies like SOAP, WSDL, CORBA, and others, but takes a minimalistic approach to the issue at hand. Unlike the aforementioned technologies, which tend to require integration with Web servers, using verbose XML-based protocols on top of textual transports (HTTP), often also requiring complex topologies (such as name servers for registering objects, etc.). Agnos is designed to be simple, efficient, and straightforward, allowing for direct communication between two ends using a compact binary protocol.
BSF4ooRexx is a Java language binding for the scripting language ooRexx. It allows ooRexx programmers to directly use the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) libraries. It allows, for example, implementation of Java methods in ooRexx and callbacks from Java to ooRexx. It camouflages Java so that it resembles ooRexx by being dynamically typed and caseless. BSF4ooRexx comes with built-in support for programming OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice.org and allows ooRexx to be used as a macro language.
OpenSAML is a portable implementation of the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) standard for the formation and exchange of authentication, attribute, and authorization data using XML, as defined by OASIS. There are interfaces for a range of languages, including C++ and Java.
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).
Zorba is a general-purpose XQuery processor implementing in C++ the W3C family of specifications. It is not an XML database. The query processor has been designed to be embeddable in a variety of environments, such as other programming languages extended with XML processing capabilities, browsers, database servers, XML message dispatchers, or smartphones. Its architecture employes a modular design, which allows customizing the Zorba query processor to the environment’s needs. In particular, the architecture of the query processor allows a pluggable XML store (e.g. main memory, DOM stores, persistent disk-based large stores, and S3 stores).
