It can be embedded in client code and is easily extensible via a simple API.
EasyPhpMassEmail is a PHP class that is intended for Web sites that need a simple solution for sending many email messages and do not have access to the PEAR packages for sending mass emails. The EasyPhpMassEmail class sends the email messages in batches and relies on an email queue page that reloads after each batch. By doing so, it is possible to send a large number of emails without problems using the mail() function and have a progress indication at the same time. The example files in the package demonstrate the use of the class.
jSmaTeP assists in the use of Java for processing import and export data by configuring a data structure rather than by programming it. The structure of the import data is specified in an XML file. jSmaTeP then generates a value object representing exactly one row or record in the import file based on a given XML data configuration. This means that if the import or export format changes, only the XML data configuration needs to be changed to match it.
