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.
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.
SharpTAL compiles XML-based templates to .NET assemblies. It contains a complete implementation of the Zope Page Templates (ZPT) language, a system which can generate HTML, XML, or plain text output. ZPT is formed by the Template Attribute Language (TAL), the Expression Syntax (TALES), and the Macro Expansion Template Attribute Language (METAL).
AsDoclet can be used to generate Actionscript and C# files out of Java sources. Such a tool is useful for RIA and client/server applications where value objects are transmitted between server and client as serialized data that should be deserializable on both ends again. That includes remoting technologies like Flash Remoting, RTMP, Blaze DS, Red5, and Hessian.
Apache .NET Ant Library is a library of Apache Ant tasks that support development for the .NET platform. It supports Microsoft's frameworks as well as Mono. The library contains tasks to run common .NET development tools like NUnit, NAnt, or MSBuild. In addition, it contains a task to create Windows MSI installer packages using the WiX toolkit. The "old" .NET development tasks of Ant's core have found a new home here as well, and further development of those tasks will happen inside of this Ant Library.
