Isobel is a framework to build complex information retrieval and analysis systems. Isobel can be functionally divided in two subsytems, Isobel Gatherer (the crawling and filtering subsystem) and Isobel Analyzer (the analysis subsystem). The two subsytems can also be used separately. Isobel Gatherer offers ready-to-use services like content fetching, scheduling, document format conversion, Hyperlink graph storage and analysis, content storage and indexing. A programmer may easily add new services. Isobel Analyzer uses the IBM UIMA architecture to reuse the analysis components developed for this architecture.
TiTLi is a Google-like search tool for relational databases . It builds on top of Apache Lucene to provide an API and a GWT-based UI for searching multiple databases from various vendors simultaneously. It is very fast due to indexing, and the database is queried only when a record is chosen.
The OpenUDDI project is focused on creating a high performance, easy to use UDDI v3 compliant server and client library. The server and client is built using Java, version 5 for the server and version 1.4 for the client. The server uses Hibernate, and supports a wide variety of SQL databases for data storage.
With MetaModel, you use a type-safe SQL-like API for querying any datastore. It is a data access framework providing a common interface for exploration and querying of different types of datastores. It isn't a data mapping framework. Instead, it emphasizes abstraction of metadata and the ability to add data sources at runtime, making MetaModel great for generic data processing applications, but less so for applications modeled around a particular domain.
