Augmented Syntax Diagrams (ASDs) provide a way to represent grammars of natural languages as directed graphs. Nodes represent instances (or usages) of words and phrase types in a language such as English. Edges link nodes together to indicate how instances of words and phrase types can follow one another to make up phrases, clauses, and sentences in the language.
Auth MemCookie is an Apache v2 authentication and authorization module based on a cookie authentication mechanism. The module doesn't do authentication by itself, but verifies if the cookie used for authentication is valid for each URL protected by the module. The module also validates whether the authenticated user has authorization to access the URL. Authentication is done externally through an authentication form page, and all authentication information necessary to the module is a stored in memcached.
BART Tracker reports on arriving San Francisco area BART trains in real time, using a system tray icon. It uses BART's new "Estimated Arrivals" or "BART System Status" feature, which reports on the current up-to-the-minute status of arriving trains at every BART station. It requires Java 6.
BRAP is a Java remoting protocol that uses native Java object serialization encapsulated in HTTP. It aims to be an alternative to Spring HttpInvoker and Spring Security, especially when you don't need or want the dependencies of Spring in your client, such as when building a rich client application where size might be an issue. The authentication mechanism lets you use your own domain objects as credentials. BRAP gives you "pass by reference" even though the object arguments are serialized and passed to the remote service: changes that happen on the remote side can be applied to the client side automatically. BRAP focuses on being easy to use, small in size, yet powerful and extensible.
While the author of BSAX-J has not yet come to a final conclusion about the need for a binary XML format, BSAX is his idea of one possible encoding that leverages other XML prior art (SAX events and UTF-8, in particular). It is complete in that it can be used to perform round-trip conversions from textual XML to SAX events to BSAX binary streams, and back to SAX events and textual XML. The test code in the distribution does exactly that for a simple example XML file, and measures the difference in file size (the file is slightly smaller for the BSAX encoding of the sample file) and the difference in read time (the read time is significantly faster for the sample file).
